Ukraine.- The United States assures that it is prepared to evacuate Zelensky




The United States has assured this Saturday that it is prepared to help the president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, to leave Kiev to avoid being captured or killed by the advancing Russian forces, according to government sources explained to ‘The Washington Post’.

However, the Ukrainian president has rejected the offer, despite the fact that he himself has explained that “the enemy” has designated him as “the number one target” and that the Russian army has intensified its attacks on around Kiev, where Zelensky is located.

In fact, Zelensky published a video on Friday night together with other high-ranking officials – such as Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal – clarifying that he would stay in the capital “defending the independence” of Ukraine against the Russian invasion.

“I know there is a lot of misinformation out there. Including the fact that I supposedly left Kiev. I stay in the capital. During the day, I carried out dozens of international negotiations, I directly supervised the Defense. And I will stay in the capital. My family is also in Ukraine », he said.

The director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), William Burns, asked the Ukrainian president in January if he or his family were “personally in danger”, something to which Zelensky was skeptical. , according to ‘The Washington Post’.

“We have been informing you not only of the threat of the Russian invasion, now a reality, but also of the threat to your person,” said the chairman of the Intelligence Committee of the Senate of the Senate of the United States, Adam Schiff, in statements. collected by the North American media.
