Regular groups of militants from Private Military Company “League” (Wagner) started arriving in Ukraine. The owner of this PMC is Yevgeny Prigogine, who is very close to Putin.
The main task of militants is to eliminate the top political leadership of Ukraine.
This was reported by the press center of the Chief Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
"Putin personally ordered another attack by one of a few trusted people. All previous attempts ended in the failure and elimination of terrorists. Key targets of mercenaries: Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Andriy Yermak, Denys Shmygal," the statement said.
According to the Chief Directorate of Intelligence, the Russian occupiers, having failed to achieve their goals during the full-scale aggression against Ukraine, continue to try to destabilize the Ukrainian government, demoralize society, disrupt the coordination of the resistance movement and slow down Ukraine's international cooperation. The organization of assassinations of the first persons of our state is part of the strategy of the occupiers.
"We note that the Kremlin's plans are well known to the Ukrainian army, special services and law enforcement agencies. We are ready to repel the aggressor both at the front and in the rear," military intelligence said.
Earlier it was reported that in the first 10 days of the war, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky was assassinated three times.
