The decision of the Verkhovna Rada to hold Zelensky’s inauguration on May 20 was an attempt to “get back at the Ukrainians,” who want the new President to take office as soon as possible. Such decision also created problems for the arrival of foreign guests and international delegation, as Zelensky’s Advisor on political issues Dmytro Razumkov said, Interfax-Ukraine reported.
“A part of MPs decided to do anything but avoid supporting the proposition of the President of the country (Volodymyr Zelensky, - ed.) and the Ukrainians who supported him on the elections,” he said.
Razumkov noted that Parliament made it really uncomfortable for Kyiv residents, as the inauguration is appointed on the first day of the working week.
He also said that it would be easier for the international delegations to manage their agenda and arrive on a weekend.
Zelensky’s Advisor said that this decision damages Ukraine’s reputation.
At the same time, ZeTeam confirmed that President-elect will take an oath to the Ukrainian people and will officially assume his duties.
