Bill Gates: Ukraine's government is "one of the worst in the world"

The American billionaire and Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, described the Ukrainian government as one of the worst in the world because of the severe corruption among its employees.

Gates said, in remarks reported by the Russian Novosti agency today, Thursday: "The Ukrainian government is one of the worst governments in the world. It is corrupt and controlled by a few wealthy people. This is very sad for the people there."

He stressed that the agricultural lands in Ukraine are more fertile than the American lands, which are Europe's food basket, and have great potential.

Oleg Soskin, advisor to the former Ukrainian president, said earlier that the West called on President Vladimir Zelensky to tighten control over cash flows and start fighting corruption.
