Top Ukrainian officials resign amid anti-corruption drive

Several senior Ukrainian officials have resigned as President Volodymyr Zelensky begins a shake-up of personnel across his government.
 
A top adviser, four deputy ministers and five regional governors left their posts today.
 
Their departure come as Ukraine launches a broad anti-corruption drive.
 
Recently, authorities have seen bribery claims, reports of officials buying food at inflated prices and one figure accused of living a lavish lifestyle.
 
Senior aide Mykhailo Podolyak said Mr. Zelensky was responding to a key public demand that justice should apply to everyone.
 
The president has already banned state officials from leaving the country unless on authorised business.
