Ukrainian Intelligence Thwarts Russian Assassination Plot Against President Zelensky

In a recent revelation, Ukrainian intelligence has disclosed the disruption of a sinister scheme orchestrated by Russian operatives aimed at assassinating President Volodymyr Zelensky and other high-ranking officials. The SBU State Security Service disclosed that they apprehended Russian agents embedded within the Ukrainian state guard, actively conspiring to abduct and eliminate the president and key governmental figures.

Vasyl Malyuk, the head of SBU, revealed that the foiled assassination plot was intended as a “gift” to Vladimir Putin, scheduled just before his upcoming inauguration. The SBU managed to apprehend two suspected infiltrators, believed to have been recruited by Russia prior to its invasion.

The intricate plan included a Russian secret agent transmitting coordinates of a safe house in preparation for a rocket attack. Additionally, Russia intended to obliterate all evidence by targeting the president with another missile, using a drone.

Despite the lack of concrete evidence, the SBU asserted, “The enemy was actively developing plans to eliminate President Volodymyr Zelensky.” The FSB, Russia’s intelligence network, sought to enlist military personnel involved in the president’s protection to facilitate the abduction and subsequent assassination.

In addition to President Zelensky, the targets of the plot included Vasyl Malyuk, the head of the Security Service of Ukraine, and Kyryll Budanov, the head of the state administration of Ukraine, among others.

Mr. Malyuk emphasized the covert nature of the operation, stating, “A limited number of people knew about our special operation, and I personally monitored its progress.” He highlighted the failure of the terrorist attack, which was intended to be a pre-inauguration gift to Putin, as a testament to the resilience of Ukrainian intelligence against Russian aggression.
