Two ‘Death Squads’ Fail Attempted Assassinations of Ukraine President Zelenskyy

Last week in a televised address Zelenskyy said he believed Russian forces “designated” him as their “Number 1 target.” It appears as though he was correct.

Reportedly a team of elite Chechen commandos sent into Ukraine to “hunt down and assassinate President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was ‘eliminated’ by security forces, a top Kyiv defense official told national media” as reported by Fox News.

A translation of Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council Oleksiy Danilov talking to Ukraine 24 TV channel indicates that defense forces countered two “death squads “sent after Zelenskyy Tuesday.

He said Ukrainian forces got intelligence about a planned attack on Zelenskyy and destroyed an elite Chechen unit. “The special operation that was to be carried out directly by the Kadyrovites to eliminate our president is fully known to us today, and I can say that we received information from representatives of the FSB, who today have no desire to take part in this bloody war,” he said.

Fox News reports:

 Ramzan Kadyrov is the leader of the Chechen Republic, which is a semiautonomous part of Russia. He is an ally of Vladimir Putin, and his commandos are considered fierce, highly skilled fighters. The FSB is in reference to Russia’s Federal Security Service. 

Fox News Digital reported Monday that Putin’s move to send Chechen fighters to join the invasion may have backfired as the Ukrainian military outperformed Russian expectations.

The Chechens are part of a Russian national guard unit and are well known for fighting insurgencies, using brutal tactics that even jolted Russia during its two brutal wars in the ’90s against them. The Chechens have been employed to hunt down terrorists in Syria and used by Russia to fight elsewhere, including in Georgia. They also fought the Ukrainians in Donbas when hostilities began there in 2014.

    The patriotism and bravery of the Ukrainian people is something to behold. They love their country and are willing to fight for it at all cost. They put the left-wing, crybaby cowardly liberals, the feckless clown senile little girl fondling Joe Biden and the ignorant, incompetent Commie-la toes-up Harris,AOC and her America hating squad, and all the Democrats to shame. They would all hide crying under their desk and surrender if that happened here.

    Collect their bodies, stuff their mouths with Pork and sew them shut. Then send them back to Chechnya in pig skin bags. Thats all they understand.

    I am not convinced about these “attempts”. Russia has nothing to gain in the Ukraines Presidents assassination, but much to lose in world opinion.
    These are crazy times. Stories fly like bullets in the air on all sides.
    Keep a sense of reality in these days as to what is true or false. Reagan said “trust, but verify”…let’s verify first.

    They should send a hit squad to Russia, then all of this would end

    Looks to me that MSM is at their “hype” stories once again. OK MSM, where is the proof, who is the source, where and when the TWO failed attempts take place? Yep, MSM is still the enemy of the people.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
