Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has initiated another wave of changes within his presidential office.

In a series of decrees published on the Ukrainian president's official website, Zelensky announced the dismissal of Sergey Shefir from his role as the chief aide, alongside the removal of Alyona Verbitskaya from her position as the nation's ombudswoman for prisoners of war rights and a presidential advisor.

Shefir, reputedly a longstanding associate of Zelensky, is known to have overseen the president's daily agenda.

He is also recognized as the head and founder of Kvartal-95 Studio.

This latest move follows the dismissal of two other officials from the presidential office and the removal of Ukrainian Ambassador to Moldova, Mark Shevchenko, on Friday.
