Zelensky involved in car crash
President Vladimir Zelensky’s motorcade was involved in a crash in Kiev on Wednesday evening, but he was not seriously injured, Ukrainian media reported, citing press secretary Sergey Nikiforov.
Zelensky was apparently on his way back from a day trip to Izyum, a city in Kharkov Region that was until recently held by Russian troops. Ukrainian forces claimed it over the weekend, after Moscow announced a “redeployment” of forces into the Lugansk People’s Republic.
The Ukrainian president was accompanied by French celebrity Bernard Henri-Levy. Photos from the visit shared by Zelensky on social media showed one of his bodyguards sporting a patch used by the SS-Totenkopfverbande units in Nazi Germany.
