After the start of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskyi survived more than 12 assassination attempts . Some managed to interfere with him thanks to information from the CIA.

This is reported  by The Independent . As indicated, publicist Chris Whipple in his book “The Struggle of a Lifetime: Inside Joe Biden’s White House” claims that William Burns made a secret visit to Ukraine before the invasion. He was instructed by US President Joe Biden to convey to Zelensky “exact details of Russian conspiracies.”

“This immediately caught Zelenskyi’s attention, he was stunned and amazed by this news,” the Independent quotes Whipple’s book.

According to the publicist’s book, at least two assassination attempts failed thanks to American intelligence, which Burns revealed during a visit to Kyiv.

“This information was so detailed that it helped Zelenskyi’s security forces prevent two separate attempts on his life by Russia,” Whipple writes.

Attempts on Zelenskyi 

Last year, the adviser to the head of the OP Mykhailo Podolyak reported that Zelensky survived more than ten attempts  on his life . 

According to the GUR, on March 20,  regular groups of militants began to arrive in Ukraine , who were tasked with liquidating the top military and political leadership of Ukraine. Later, the Ministry of Defense  confirmed that militants of the Russian private military company “Wagner” planned the assassination of Zelensky and Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal. 

According to the Secretary of the National Security Council, at the beginning of the war, a huge number of politicians from different countries wanted Zelensky for security. However, the Ukrainian leader himself responded indifferently to reports of a threat to life.

  1. “This information was so detailed that it helped Zelenskyi’s security forces prevent two separate attempts on his life by Russia,”

    We have the power and the means to eliminate the beady-eyed rat in the Kremlin. I wish our government had enough gonads to do it.

    • Not a fan of Biden either, but I’m glad he made the choice to share this valuable information with President Zelenskyy.

  2. Only 12 attempts? I figured there was an attempt every week if not every day. God bless President Zelensky. Indeed the right leader at the right time and the right place.

What is your opinion?
