Ukraine corruption scandal claims several top officials


KYIV, Ukraine — Several senior Ukrainian officials, including front-line governors, lost their jobs Tuesday in a corruption scandal plaguing President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s government as it grapples with the nearly 11-month-old Russian invasion. Zelenskyy was elected in 2019 on an anti-establishm­ent and anti-corruption platform in a country long gripped by graft, and the new allegation­s come as Western allies are channeling billions of dollars to help Kyiv fight against Moscow.

Officials in several countries, including the United States, have demanded more accountabi­lity for the aid, given Ukraine’s rampant corruption.
