Fugitive Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has sent a message to European Union leaders.
In the conference call, according to an Israeli Walla News reporter, Zelensky allegedly told them, “This may be the last time you see me alive,” while Spetsnaz and GRU forces are searching for him across Ukraine in a manhunt reminiscent of that of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi.
A few hours ago he escaped arrest from the presidential palace and is now being sought by special teams of terrorists and illegal immigrants.

A short while ago, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova revealed that the purpose of the Russian military operation in Ukraine “is to protect people who have been subjected to abuse and genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years“.
“Another task of the operation is to bring the dummy regime that came to power in 2014 in an unconstitutional coup to justice for the crimes committed during those years against civilians, including citizens of the Russian Federation, and to carry out the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine,” the diplomat said.
“All the Kiev regime can do is comply with orders coming from across the ocean that are not in the interests of the Russian people,” Zakharova said.
Maria Zakharova also accused France of being responsible for the stagnation of the negotiations on the Ukrainian issue. He claimed it is “now part of the hysteria surrounding Russia“.
