Ukrainian ex-official wants to sue Zelensky

KIEV, 27 Nov – Former head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Vasily Burba said he would go to court after statements by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky about the reasons for his dismissal.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy named on Friday a series of episodes that undermined his confidence in Vasily Burba. So, he said that the former head of the main intelligence department of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Vasily Burba wanted to embroil Kiev with Turkey because of the detention of 33 Russians in Minsk in the summer of 2020, and the president also considers the ex-head of intelligence to be an adventurer and a swindler. He said that Burba allegedly brought information about the origin of COVID-19 and allegedly even a vaccine formula, but Zelensky passed this information on to doctors, and they said that “this is zero.”

“I cannot ignore the president’s words addressed to me … Therefore, I have to go to court from tomorrow, and let the court put an end to this issue,” he said on the air of Savik Shuster’s Freedom of Speech program in Youtube

He responded to the words of the president, in particular, commented on the information about COVID-19, saying that he was surprised to hear it, and added that he himself was vaccinated. Burba also commented on other words of Zelensky, saying that he lived in the state dacha and made repairs there for his own money, and not “for 11 million,” and was also interrogated in the Maidan affairs, but no charges were brought against him.
