Ukrainian security forces announced that they foiled an assassination attempt against President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
In a statement made by the Ukrainian intelligence service SBU, it was reported that a woman who was gathering information about Zelenskyy's visit to the Mykolaiv region in the south of the country was detained.
It was stated that the woman, whose name was not disclosed, was tasked with gathering the necessary information for Russia to organize an airstrike against Zelenskyy, and Ukrainian intelligence started to follow the woman after realizing the situation.
Zelenskyy, who posted on his Telegram account after the incident was revealed, stated that the SBU chief informed him about the "war with traitors".
The SBU noted that the detained woman was collecting information to determine the possible times and places of Zelenskyy's visit.
The woman was caught red-handed when she was about to transmit the information to the Russian side.
It was announced that a large number of information notes and electronic materials were seized during the search of the woman's house.
Ukrainian security sources said the woman faces charges of unauthorized sharing of ammunition and locations of military units and could be sentenced to 12 years in prison.
Zelenskyy said that Russia wanted to kill him at the beginning of the war. It was claimed that more than 400 Wagner members were in Kyiv at the time and that they tried to kill Zelensky as part of Russia's "decapitation" mission.
