Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has fired all of his nation's army recruitment directors after an investigation revealed widespread corruption.

In actions the Ukrainian president labeled "treason," the recruitment chiefs in charge of onboarding new soldiers who had been drafted instead accepted bribes to help men avoid conscription and escape the war-torn country, Zelenskyy said in a statement.

"This system should be run by people who know exactly what war is and why cynicism and bribery during war is treason," Zelenskyy said. »
