Zelensky revealed that the Kremlin is plotting to overthrow him before the end of the year in an operation known as “Maidan 3”referencing the 2014 Euromaidan revolution that sparked the Russian annexation of Crimea and led to the outbreak of war.
Regarding the first assassination attempt, he said that “it’s very interesting, when it’s the first time, and then it’s like Covid,” Zelensky told the Sun newspaper.
“First of all, people don’t know what to do with it and it’s very scary. And after that, it’s just intelligence information sharing details with them that one more group came to Ukraine to try this,” the president said.
