U.S. hopes Zelensky will demonstrate independence from oligarchs

U.S. hopes Zelensky will demonstrate independence from oligarchs
10 of July 2019 г.
The first steps taken by President Volodymyr Zelensky give hope that he will demonstrate his independence from oligarchs and will continue to implement complex reforms, including reform of the country's judicial system and defense sector.

Former CIA Director David Petraeus and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine John Herbst wrote this in an article published on the website of American political newspaper The Hill.

"The new president's initial appointments give hope that the reforms desired by the [Ukrainian] people might be achieved. To be sure, there is concern over the appointment of the president's chief of staff, who worked for one of the country's most notorious oligarchs, but President Volodymyr Zelensky will have ample opportunity to demonstrate his independence," the article reads.

At the same time, it notes that the parliamentary elections scheduled for July 21 likely will strengthen the president's hand, giving his party the majority needed to pass legislation without assistance.

"Zelensky's other great challenge is dealing with the Kremlin, and his inexperience is something that ex-KGB Lt. Col. Vladimir Putin has been trained to exploit," Petraeus and Herbst wrote.

But Zelensky has demonstrated aptitude already, according to the article.

"While still president-elect, he deftly responded to Putin's first provocation of offering Russian passports to Ukrainian citizens in the Kremlin-controlled Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine by dismissing the offer as 'a ticket to a life without human rights'," the experts said.

In addition, they noted that during his first trips to Brussels, Paris and Berlin, Zelensky highlighted his interest in greater cooperation with the EU and NATO.
