Is Ukraine Still Corrupt?

CNN: Zelensky rejects Trump's claim that Ukraine is corrupt in interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour

In a CNN interview, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Saturday strongly rejected US President Donald Trump's claim that Ukraine is corrupt. He also said he is ready for another phone call with Trump and open to visiting the White House.

Zelensky spoke wtih CNN's Christiane Amanpour at the Munich Security Conference in his first one-on-one interview since the end of Trump's impeachment trial. A July 25 telephone call between the two men, which Trump repeatedly called "perfect," was at the heart of the impeachment probe.

Update #2: Zelensky responds to Trump's claims: 'It's not true that Ukraine is a corrupt country' (USA Today)

WNU Editor: The culture of corruption has always been very deep in Ukraine. My Ukrainian cousin and her son are staying at my home in Canada this weekend. She has multiple business interests in Ukraine, and is also a regular commentator on a business cable channel in Kiev. Before making this post I asked her if Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is telling the truth when he said that Ukraine is not corrupt. She is a supporter of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, but the look she gave me was priceless. In short .... Ukraine is very corrupt.
