Accusing fingers have been pointed over alleged assassination plot against Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
A senior adviser to the Ukrainian Minister of Defense, Markian Lubkivskyi, told CNN that Russian private military group, Wagner was involved in the assassination attempt.
“They wanted to assassinate the leadership of Ukraine: our President and Prime Minister,” he told CNN.
“That was the goal and a couple of them were sent to Ukraine without any success,” he said.
According to Lubkivskyi, the plot to assassinate Zelensky and the Prime Minister was affirmed by Ukraine’s intelligence administration and exceptional powers responsible for protecting Zelensky.
“All these documents and the necessary proof will be presented to the International Court,” he said, adding that he could not reveal more due to operational reasons.
The war among Russia and Ukraine is as of now entering its next month, with numerous Ukrainian towns and urban communities obliterated and casualties presently included in thousands.
