Yermak comments on accusations of alleged cooperation with the FSB

Jun 3, 2023

The first reports about the alleged cooperation of the head of the Presidential Office with the enemy appeared in anonymous Telegram channels run by the FSB.


The head of the Presidential Office, Andriy Yermak, said this in Dmytro Komarov's project "Year. Behind the Scenes. The Office of the President," Ukrinform reports.

"I am always in favor of a direct conversation, and if we take the language of facts, the first hints of "agent of Russia" and "FSB" appeared during my work, where I represented Ukraine in the Normandy format. I was a very difficult negotiator for them. And today our SBU is already saying that for the first time this information, which, unfortunately, was later picked up by some Ukrainian politicians, first of all appeared in anonymous Telegram channels, which, as our SBU and intelligence prove today, are run by the Russian FSB. Even I find it funny to hear about this, because of the level of people I talk to today - including the intelligence chiefs of our partners, the Americans and the British - and as you can imagine, if these people had even such a question for me, everything would definitely be different," Yermak said.

He noted that a lot of rumors and fakes are spread about him and his family, but it is necessary to analyze and remember Russian propaganda, which works non-stop.

"We must always analyze and compare because we live in an information field where the giant Russian propaganda machine works non-stop. It works not only for Ukraine, it works for the whole world. And today, it throws some points at us every day to make us afraid, to make us stop believing, to make us quarrel with our partners, but every time we have to draw our own conclusions," Yermak urged.
