  • The new political season in Ukraine kicked off with audio tapes leaked on Wednesday (15 January), suggesting that the prime minister, the finance minister and the deputy central bank governor had criticised President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s incompetence in the fields of economy and finance.
  • Two days later, Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk handed in his resignation.
  • If Zelenskiy accepts his resignation, it will be sent to Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada.
