Ukraine’s leader warns of “bloody chaos” if anti-graft laws are not restored

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy warned on Monday that Ukraine could slide into “bloody chaos” if parliament does not restore anti-corruption reforms which he says are vital to keep foreign aid flowing. Zelenskiy has asked parliament to vote to dissolve the Constitutional Court and reinstate anti-corruption laws it struck down last week, but the outcome of the vote is uncertain. Ukraine’s patchy performance on reforms has impeded a $5 billion deal from the International Monetary Fund to support the economy, which has been hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
