Politico: Vladimir Zelensky plans to dismiss the head of the SBU Ivan Bakanov
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky plans to resign Security Services of Ukraine (SBU) Ivan Bakanov. This became known to the publication Politico.
According to the sources of the publication, Zelensky wants to take such a step because of Bakanov’s lack of professionalism, and also due to the fact that some high-ranking SBU officers left their posts after the start of the special operation. This issue is also being addressed by a diplomat from a Western country who advised Ukraine on the reforms needed to modernize the service.
