Anti-war elements

They’ve been trying to take Zelensky out and failing.

President Zelensky has survived at least three assassination attempts in the past week, The Times has learnt.

Two different outfits have been sent to kill the Ukrainian president — mercenaries of the Kremlin-backed Wagner group and Chechen special forces. Both have been thwarted by anti-war elements within Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB).

Wagner mercenaries in Kyiv have sustained losses during their attempts and are said to have been alarmed by how accurately the Ukrainians had anticipated their moves. A source close to the group said it was “eerie” how well briefed Zelensky’s security team appeared to be.

Some Chechens tried last Saturday and were “eliminated” by Ukrainian security.

Oleksiy Danilov, the secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council, told Ukrainian TV channels that Russian spies had tipped them off about the planned assassination.Ukrainian officials claim the information that led to the deaths of the Chechens came from disgruntled agents in the FSB who oppose the invasion.

Awesome. I’ve been wondering about that. All the reports are that Putin is isolated and paranoid, so it seems highly likely that there are plenty of “disgruntled” people all over the place, including in the FSB.

However, there are still a lot of agents there, and they could still succeed.
