Ukrainian President Zelensky deepens alliance with far right | WSWS - May 1, 2021 |

As the former head of the neo-Nazi Right Sector in Odessa, Sternenko was directly implicated in the 2014 Trade Unions House massacre of 46 people. He is a convicted criminal and currently under investigation for murder.

Andriy Bohdan, the former head of Zelensky's administration, confirmed the president's offer in a Facebook post in response to questions by a reporter with the online news site Strana. When asked if the rumors were true that Zelensky had offered the position to Sternenko, Bohdan replied, "I think he did it right when they were quickly forming a list of government deputies. An acute personnel shortage as they say."

While Sternenko had previously claimed that he met personally with Zelensky and was offered the position in 2019, ties between the two had never been officially confirmed by anyone close to the president.

Denazification? Brouhaha ...
