Advisor to the head of Volodymyr Zelensky's office, Mykhailo Podolyak, commented on Ukrainian media reports that the official list of full-time and freelance advisers to the Office of the President of Ukraine did not contain the name of Oleksiy Arestovich.
Podolyak noted that Arestovich really is not currently an adviser to the head of the Office of Volodymyr Zelensky or one of his deputies.
“He talks so much that we made him an adviser … to the entire Office at once,” wrote Podolyak.
At the same time, he added that the official position of Arestovich has been invariably called “Advisor to the Office of the President of Ukraine” for several years now.
Podolyak stressed that Arestovich officially holds this position according to the staffing table.
“And therefore, as an “adviser to the head of the office,” I can personally only advise respected journalists to make requests more carefully and check the information in detail” , – advised Podolyak.
