    President Vladimir Putin said that Ukraine was drowning in corruption during his Q&A session with the students of the educational centre.


    "The current power came in the wake of the fight against corruption, which was one of the flags with which the opposition came to power. Unfortunately, they went through a coup d'état. But they came to power, and what now, what is the result?" Corruption became even greater. Ukraine is drowning in this corruption, what is more, at the highest echelons of power and lower," Putin said while communicating with the students of the educational centre Sirius.
