The Constitutional Court of Ukraine said that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy went beyond his powers. Does the policy face impeachment, said Ruslan Bortnik, head of the Institute for Analysis and Management of the politician.
The Ukrainian president yesterday signed a decree on the removal of Alexander Tupitsky from the post of chairman of the Constitutional Court for two months. The jurist was suspected of bribing a witness.
The Constitutional Court called the order of Volodymyr Zelensky “null and void and not subject to execution.” The President was accused of interfering with the activities of the court and abuse of power.
Expert Ruslan Bortnik called the COP’s response “a time bomb.” According to him, now it is unrealistic to launch an impeachment procedure in Ukraine, but the situation may change over time.
The Constitutional Court has shown that it is not going to fulfill the presidential decree. In the future, this may become the basis for impeachment and the start of criminal proceedings against Zelensky.
Bortnik admitted that the head of Ukraine would try to fire Tupitsky, and he could succeed. But even if it is his small victory, the president has already lost the war itself.
Many experts believe that Vladimir Zelensky is gradually losing the support of citizens. According to the Razumkov Center, more than 40% of Ukrainians surveyed consider it the disappointment of the year.
Despite this, Volodymyr Zelenskyy is still considered the most popular politician in Ukraine, analyst Mikhail Pogrebinsky is sure. He is still supported by the majority.
