Ukraine – the new President. On Monday morning, Vladimir Zelensky officially took office. Before the inauguration of newly elected President laid out in instagram photo with the first lady of Ukraine and signed the “New stage. We are ready,” reports the correspondent channel “WORLD 24” Maxim Dragnev.
The path to the presidency is through a selfie. Without trains and limousines Vladimir Zelensky walk walk in Mariinsky Park, where he greeted supporters. The inauguration followed the script of the famous TV series “a servant of the people”. There hero Zelensky timidly took the oath. In Parliament he took a cab and without protection, and in the Parliament and it does not immediately noticed.
In real life, people were much larger. The heads of Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Georgia and Hungary, colleagues from the CIS, the Minister of energy of the United States. “Former” is also not forgotten – Kravchuk and Poroshenko were. Yanukovych, however, is not.
Zelensky became the sixth President of Ukraine. New servant of the people the oath of allegiance said, putting his hand on the Peresopnytsia gospel and the elbow on the Constitution. Symbols of authority – the Mace, the badge and the print. With such baggage Zelensky addressed the audience. Asked the deputies to adopt urgent laws to dismiss the head of the SBU, the Prosecutor General and the Minister of defence. All in all about two months.
Zelensky quoted Ronald Reagan. He says the government does not solve problems. And the President is not omnipotent.
“I really want to see in your classrooms was not my images, no, please, my portraits, because the President – not an icon, not an idol. Hang in there pictures of their children and before each solution, look them in the eye,” – said the President of Ukraine.
Zelensky and then switched to Russian. Made it clear to MPs of immunity has to go. Another decision of the President of the parliamentarians hardly pleased, but street inspired.
“I dissolve the Verkhovna Rada of the eighth slikanja,” said the President.
His first task, the President said ending the war in the Donbass, said that for the sake of peace even at the office willing to sacrifice. Ukrainian prisoners should return home. Zelensky called for unity and said that every Ukrainian is responsible for the European path of the country. Eventually led the speaker of Parliament Andriy Parubiy.
“Thank you to everyone who took part in the solemn meeting. It was fun,” said the speaker.
