President Zelensky has announced today a flurry of dismissals of ambassadors. The Ukrainian ambassadors to Germany, Norway, the Czech Republic, and India have all been announced in the last 10 minutes.
The first official announcement was of the dismissal of ambassador to Germany, Andrij Melnyk, by President Zelensky, who has been in hot water the past few days after defending a Nazi collaborator. The message reads:
