Assassination Plot Thwarted

Ukrainian authorities said yesterday they had arrested a woman in connection with a purported assassination plot against President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The plot was allegedly hatched by Russian officials to gather information on the president’s whereabouts.

The unidentified woman is a former saleswoman in a military shop and lives in the southern town of Ochakiv in the Mykolaiv region—a vital Ukrainian port on the Black Sea. According to the country's secret service agency, the suspect was caught gathering intelligence about Zelenskyy's planned trip to the Mykolaiv region to provide to Russia, including his full itinerary as well as the locations of electronic warfare systems and ammunition depots. Russia was allegedly planning a targeted attack while Zelenskyy was in the area.

Zelenskyy has said there were at least a dozen assassination attempts on him during the first two weeks after the war began. The woman may be facing up to 12 years in prison. See updates on the war here.
