Amid war, Ukraine’s Zelensky declares his income as part of a transparency drive

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky disclosed his salary during a two-year period on Sunday as part of a campaign to promote openness and combat widespread corruption.
In a statement on the presidential website, Zelensky stated that his income had decreased in 2021 and even more in 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine at the end of February. It was the first time he had publicly disclosed his income.

In 2021, the year before the invasion, Zelensky and his family reported a total income of 10.8 million hryvnias ($286,168), a decrease of 12 million from the previous year. The 2021 figure reflected profits from the sale of $142,000 in government bonds.
