Political analyst says big oligarchic war begins in Ukraine

On Friday, during a press conference, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that allegedly Ukrainian businessman Rinat Akhmetov is planning a coup d’état in early December. According to Zelensky, they want to spend $1 billion on the implementation of the plans.

“It is clear to everyone that Zelensky is not telling the truth. And it is clear to everyone that Zelensky will now attack the oligarch Akhmetov. And he will accuse him of high treason. Several weeks ago, Zelensky and Akhmetov, who had been allies for over a year, had a falling out. Akhmetov’s TV channels began to beat Zelensky. Now Zelensky has decided to answer harshly. A new big dirty oligarchic war begins. It is impossible to say who will win”, the expert noted in his Telegram channel.

According to Markov, Zelensky and Akhmetov will be able to establish cooperation, but after a while a conflict will flare up between them again. In turn, Akhmetov called the information about the upcoming coup d’etat in Ukraine “a complete lie”.
