Kiev suspects Moscow is plotting behind the Council of Europe head, who hailed President Zelensky’s electoral win but warned there’s still a way to go before Ukraine can beat corruption and become, wait for it, a sovereign state.
Thorbjorn Jagland, the secretary general of the Council of Europe, relayed his praise via Twitter, hailing Volodymyr Zelensky’s Servant of the People party. Its electoral victory, having declared a crusade on corruption, “creates new hope for Ukraine” but there’s still much to be done, Jagland said.
Building “non-corrupted institutions which people can trust, is the way forward to a sovereign Ukrainian state,” the top European official tweeted.
Bravo to President Zelenskiy and his party Sluga Narodu. Election creates new hope for Ukraine. Non-corrupted institutions which people can trust, is the way forward to a sovereign Ukrainian state

Jagland’s judgement wasn’t warmly embraced in Ukraine. The president’s office has yet to comment on the tweet, but the Foreign Ministry fired back and – unsurprisingly – suggested that Moscow’s hand must have been behind the message. (RT)
