Removal of SBU head and Prosecutor General was not shocking: Ukrainian MP

Ukrainian MP Andriy Osadchuk talked with World News host Maciej Mikos about the recent decision of the Ukrainian president to sack the head of the SBU and the Prosecutor General over accusations of their employers collaborating with the Russians.

On Sunday Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy removed the head of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) Ivan Bakanov and Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova from their posts after a large number of officials employed in the SBU and the prosecutor’s office that have been accused of collaborating with the Russian invaders.

According to Andriy Osadchuk, the decision was surprising but not shocking. “There were rumours before, that Bakanov may lose his place, I would say like one and a half two months. The same for Iryna Venediktova, the General Prosecutor Officer, the rumours were even from last October I would say.”

He added that the former SBU head will have a lot of questions to answer as his post was one of the most important in terms of the situation Ukraine is currently in. He added that tomorrow the ultimate fate of Ivan Bakanov will be decided by the Ukrainian parliament as for now he is only suspended.

The Ukrainian MP also pointed out that if the parliament was to find some really big problems stemming from Mr Bakanov’s mismanagement he will be found responsible.
