Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky Survived 3 Assassination Attempts Last Week

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has survived at least three assassination attempts from Russia-backed agents in the past week, according to reports.

Mercenaries from the Kremlin-backed Wagner group and Chechen special forces were sent to kill Zelensky, The Times of London reported.

Attempts from both outfits were thwarted with intelligence from anti-war elements within Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB).

A source familiar with the Wagner group told The Times that the mercenaries were reportedly alarmed by how well-informed Ukraine’s security team was, describing it as “eerie”.

Another assassination attempt by Chechen assassins was foiled on Saturday when agents were “eliminated” before they could reach Zelensky, according to the report, although no specifics were given.

Oleksiy Danilov, the secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, sent a similar report on Telegram earlier this week.

“I can say that we have received information from the FSB, who do not want to take part in this bloody war,” he said. “And thanks to this, the Kadyrov elite group was destroyed, which came here to eliminate our president.”

The U.S. offered to evacuate Zelensky after the war in Ukraine broke out. The president declined and chose to stay in Kyiv, a move praised by the international community.
