According to the source, Mendel has many complaints about the working conditions. Also, her work as a whole is negatively assessed by the head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak, who thinks that the press secretary needs to be replaced. At the same time, President Zelensky personally treats Mendel well, which kept her from dismissal in previous times.

"But this time, it seems that she is already really determined to leave, and the Office does not really want to keep her. Moreover, they are already starting to look for a replacement," the message says.

While working in the Office of the President, Mendel has repeatedly been in scandalous situations. At the very beginning of her work, the president's press secretary publicly announced the shelling of civilian objects by Ukrainian servicemen in Donbas. Later, Mendel pushed away journalists who wanted to ask Zelensky questions. Also before the official visit to Lithuania, the press secretary confused the country with Latvia.
