Leros scandals.

In March 2020, Geo Leros, an MP from Servants of the People, published a series of videos online showing the brother of Andriy Yermak, the head of the Office of the President, Denis, allegedly selling government jobs.

After that Leros repeatedly criticized Yermak himself, accusing him of corruption, protection of business and betrayal of national interests.

All this ended with Leros being kicked out of the "Servant of the People" faction. At the same time, the media found possible correspondence between Yermak and the SN MPs, in which he demanded in foul language that Leros be expelled from the faction.

Leaving the operation with the Wagnerites

After the Russian mercenaries were detained in Belarus, it became known that an attempt was made to pull them through Minsk to Ukraine for detention. According to media reports, as part of a special operation by Ukrainian special services, Russian mercenaries who took part in the war against Ukraine in Donbass were to be detained on a plane from Minsk to Istanbul, which would have made an emergency landing in Kiev.

To lure the mercenaries out of Russia, they were hired ostensibly to protect a facility in Venezuela. They were also interviewed in which they confessed to war crimes in Donbass. Subsequently, these recordings were released to the media.

However, the operation was uncovered and thwarted after it was reported to President Vladimir Zelensky during a meeting in the Office of the President, which was also attended by the head of OPU Andrei Yermak.

The media believed that Ermak was the one who leaked the information about the special operation, because at the same time he was negotiating with Russia on the exchange of prisoners and the head of OPU did not want to spoil relations with Moscow.

Later, the "Wagnerians" were returned to Russia, but the exchange of prisoners never took place.
