18 January 2020

On January 15 evening, an audiotape was uploaded to social media in which a voice sounding like Prime Minister's Oleksiy Honcharuk was reportedly heard discussing the national budget with some other government ministers and senior officials from the national bank. Honcharuk submitted his resignation following a leaked audio recording of him reportedly criticizing Zelensky's understanding of the economy. However Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky declined a resignation offer by Oleksiy Honcharuk, last week.
