He alleged that Putin supports the Hamas attack on Israel, citing Russia’s apparent strengthening of relations with Iran, which supports Hamas and has supplied Moscow with kamikaze drones.
Zelensky claims that Ukrainian intelligence has thwarted multiple assassination attempts on him, beginning with the Russian invasion on February 24, 2022.
He also claims that the Kremlin plans to oust him before the end of the year in a mission dubbed “Maidan 3”.
