Zelenskiy-Senate Meet

President-elect Volodymyr Zelenskiy met with members of Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, on May 4 to discuss his presidential inauguration.

Zelenskiy insisted on May 19 as a date for the ceremony and now hopes that deputies will vote for it on May 14, during their next session.

“Because we need to start working,” Zelenskiy said on Facebook, also publishing a petition to the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Andriy Parubiy, echoing the request. “Сertainty is extremely important for the people of Ukraine, for the foreign guests — who have already expressed a desire to come to the ceremony — and for me personally.”

The deputies promised to spread Zelenskiy’s appeal among their colleagues prior to the session on May 14, said Vice Speaker Iryna Gerashchenko, who was also present at this meeting.
