Multiple top Ukrainian officials resigned or were dismissed on Tuesday, following Volodymyr Zelensky’s promise on Monday that “personnel changes” were imminent amid recent corruption scandals.

Deputy Defense Minister Vyacheslav Shapovalov, who was accused of overseeing food purchases for troops at inflated prices; Deputy Prosecutor General Oleksiy Symonenko, who reportedly borrowed a Kyiv businessman’s car to take a vacation in December; and President's Office Deputy Head Kyrylo Tymoshenko, who was accused of using an SUV donated for humanitarian use as his personal vehicle, all left their posts.
