ウクライナの法執行機関で反政府的な職員が増加


Zelensky fires head of security service and prosecutor general
Both officials were let go due to numerous facts of treason among employees of their departments

Ukrainian Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova and SBU chief Ivan Bakanov have been fired from their positions effective Sunday, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced in a pair of presidential decrees, citing a high number of cases of treason among law enforcement and the intelligence service.

Some 651 criminal cases relating to high treason and “collaboration activities” had been registered on law enforcement employees, while more than 60 SBU agents were supposedly “working against our state,” Zelensky announced on Sunday, explaining this rationale for firing the senior officials.

Bakanov was removed under Article 47 of the Disciplinary Statute of the Ukrainian military, which refers to failure in official duties “which caused loss of life or other grave consequences or create a threat of such consequences.” His replacement has not yet been named.

Venediktova, who had served as Ukraine’s prosecutor general since March 2020, has been replaced by Oleksiy Symonenko.

Zelensky has dismissed a number of staffers recently, firing five ambassadors last week, including the ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk. The ambassadors to Hungary, Czech Republic, Norway, and a fifth ambassador with responsibility for India, Maldives, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh were all let go.
ウクライナのイリナ・ヴェネディクトヴァ検事総長とイワン・バカノフSBU局長は、法執行機関と情報機関の間で反逆罪が多発しているとして、2つの大統領令を発表し、日曜日付けでその職を解任された。

大逆罪と「協力活動」に関連する651件の刑事事件が法執行機関の職員について登録されており、60人以上のSBU捜査官が「国家に反して働いている」とされている、とゼレンスキー大統領は日曜日に発表し、この高官を解雇する根拠を説明した。

バカノフは、ウクライナ軍の懲戒規定第47条に基づき解任された。この規定では、公務の失敗が「人命の損失やその他の重大な結果を引き起こしたか、そのような結果の脅威を生じさせた」とされている。彼の後任はまだ決まっていない。

2020年3月からウクライナの検事総長を務めていたヴェネディクトワは、オレクシー・シモネンコと交代した。

ゼレンスキーは最近多くのスタッフを解雇しており、先週は駐ドイツ大使のアンドリー・メルニクを含む5人の大使を解雇した。ハンガリー、チェコ、ノルウェーの各大使と、インド、モルディブ、ネパール、スリランカ、バングラデシュを担当する5人目の大使は全員解雇された。

Zelensky explains why he fired Ukraine’s top security officials
Ukraine’s security services are riddled with traitors and Russia “collaborators,” the president claimed
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has fired Prosecutor General Irina Venediktova and the head of the country’s top security agency, Ivan Bakanov, citing allegedly rampant “treason” in both services.

In Sunday’s dramatic announcement, he claimed that a large numbers of staffers at Kiev’s successor to the KGB, the SBU −which Bakanov headed since 2019 − were working with Russia.

“As of today, some 651 criminal cases have been registered on high treason and collaboration activities of employees of the prosecutor’s office, pre-trial investigation bodies, and other law enforcement agencies,” Zelensky stated, announcing the decision.

Amid the ongoing conflict with Russia, “more than 60 employees of the law enforcement agencies and the SBU” remained in the “occupied territory” and are now working against Ukraine, Zelensky claimed. That vast “array of crimes,” as well as contacts between “employees of law enforcement agencies of Ukraine and Russia,” are posing “serious questions” to the heads of the respective bodies, he went on, warning that “every such question will get an appropriate answer.”

Bakanov, who assumed the spy-chief post shortly after Zelensky’s presidential victory in 2019, was removed under Article 47 of the Disciplinary Statute of the Ukrainian military. The article refers specifically to a serious failure in official duties “which caused loss of life or other grave consequences or create a threat of such consequences.”

While Bakanov’s successor has not been named yet, Venediktova, who had served as prosecutor general since March 2020, has been replaced by Oleksiy Symonenko.
