Ukrainian authorities are investigating an Ukranian lawmaker who posted videos that appear to be showing the brother of President Volodymyr Zelensky’s chief of staff discussing bribes in return for appointments at various government positions, the Kyiv Post reported on Tuesday.
MP Geo Leros shared the hours-long videos with Radio Liberty’s investigative team and posted some of them on his Facebook page on Sunday.
They allegedly show a man Leros identifies as Denys Yermak, bragging about being the younger brother of the President’s Chief of Staff, Andriy Yermak, and knowing the president personally.
According to Radio Liberty, the footage does not show any handover of cash but the man is heard discussing how much this or that government position will cost a candidate, and how the received profit will be distributed between the participants in the scheme, including himself.
