Putin No Longer Independent Actor - Zelensky

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, noted that Russian leader Volodymyr Putin has ceased to be an independent Political figure and is now primarily driven by money.

The head of the Ukrainian state said this in an interview with Reuters , reports Ukrinform.

"Putin is no longer an independent figure. He sends a wave of narratives that Ukraine is governed by the United States of America, but he is primarily driven by money. The big money swirling around him. He understands that he will be taken out of the Kremlin only with his feet forward. This is the system in which he exists. And his entourage keeps him within that system. The task is to find a weak point in the system, and this is a daily job," Zelensky said.
