Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during an informal meeting with journalists at the Presidential Administration building in Kyiv on Wednesday declared his intention to relocate his administration from the center of Kyiv and turn the old Presidential Administration building into an art museum.
“I want this very much. The main problem for me now is time limits. Because to build a structure from scratch is impossible. But I cannot be here, because it drives me crazy,” the president said.
Zelensky said he is looking at options which will not require taking money for the move from the state budget. He said the old Presidential Administration building could be turned into an art museum.
