KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy fired national security council secretary Oleksandr Danyliuk, according to a decree published on the president’s official website.

Danyliuk offered to quit before Zelenskiy began a visit to the United States last week, the president’s office said on Friday.
