In an interview with the British newspaper The Sun, the president of Ukraine spoke about the fact that there have been five or six attempts to assassinate him since the outbreak of the war, reports rbc.ua.
According to Volodymyr Zelenskyi, he clearly remembers the first assassination attempt, when a subversive group tried to liquidate him. He is already used to the subsequent assassination attempts. This is as horrible as the COVID epidemic, the president said. One group preparing for murder hit the other.
The first assassination attempt was attempted by a Russian paratrooper unit dropped in Kiev in the days following the outbreak of the war. However, the presidential bodyguard managed to prevent the assassination attempt. The presidential office was barricaded with furniture and pieces of veneer, the staff were given bulletproof vests and weapons. British and American officials then suggested to Zelensky to leave Kyiv. Then he replied that he needed weapons rather than a taxi.
In those fraught days, the Ukrainian president left his office and told the people of his country in a video message that the Ukrainian leadership will remain in place no matter what happens. Although it has happened many times since then, at least a dozen times they wanted to remove the president of Ukraine from his feet.
