At the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russian Kafirs made two attempts to storm the residence of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. First Lady Elena Zelenska and their children were still there at the time. This is what Time writes about.
At the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion, the military reported that Russian strike teams had landed in Kyiv to kill or capture the President and his family.
"As night fell that first night, gunfire erupted around the government quarter. The guards inside the compound turned off the lights and brought Zelensky and a dozen or so of his aides body armor and assault rifles. Only a few of them knew how to handle weapons. One of them was Alexei Arestovich, a military veteran," the article says.
According to Arestovich's adviser, Russian troops made two attempts to storm the residence. Zelensky later confirmed that his wife and children were still there.
Zelensky's bodyguards urged him to leave the residence immediately. The building is located in a densely populated area surrounded by private houses that could be "nests" for enemy snipers. Some houses are close enough to throw a grenade through a window on the other side of the street.
"The place was wide open," Arestovich says. "We didn't even have concrete blocks to block off the street," he added.
Zelensky is currently working in isolation.
