They flirted with these people: Oh, how they looked, how many likes, started this whole story. I met Alex and said, "Look, we need to work. We prohibit Ministers during the working day to use Facebook and other social networks. Have work to do. What kind of game? What's going on, what is this summer camp?" - Zelensky said in an interview with "Ukrainian truth" published on Thursday.

So I told him frankly said: "Alex, I don't think you can be Prime Minister. And not because of recording, but because of what was happening. I believe that you do not become a team with people with the deputies, all the Ministers," added the head of state.
