A Russian strike in Zaporizhzhia damaged a hotel frequented by the UN and NGO workers. Meanwhile, a group of Western nations condemned Russia’s support for separatists in Georgia.

The heads of military recruitment across Ukraine are to be fired amid concerns that they have engaged in corruption, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced on his Telegram channel on Friday.

”This system should be run by people who know exactly what war is and why cynicism and bribery during war is treason,” the Ukrainian president wrote.

Instead, he suggested employing soldiers who have fought already but can no longer for health reasons as they ”do not have cynicism.”

Zelenskyy said there were 112 criminal proceedings taking place against current recruitment officials.
