CIA chief traveled to Kyiv before the war to warn Zelenskyy of an assassination attempt

According to a renowned American political scientist, CIA chief Bill Burns personally traveled to Ukraine before the Russians invaded at the end of February to warn Zelenskyy of the impending assassination risks.

In January 2022, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky received CIA chief Bill Burns to discuss the risks of a Russian invasion and plans to assassinate the head of state, The Independent reported on Tuesday, citing Chris Whipple’s next book.

The American author and White House specialist close to power claims that Volodymyr Zelenskyy did not believe in a Russian invasion of Ukraine at the time and that American warnings about it only served to create “panic”.

That’s why Bill Burns has personally traveled to Kyiv to “give him a taste of reality,” particularly after Joe Biden’s request to “share specific details on Russian conspiracies.” Information received seriously by Volodymyr Zelensky, despite the surprise.

Two Russian attacks were thwarted thanks to the Americans

Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, the secret service has made it possible to thwart “two Russian attacks” on the Ukrainian president, again according to Chris Whipple.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been a priority target for the Kremlin since the conflict began on February 24. At the beginning of March, several media reported that the Russian paramilitary group Wagner had entered the Ukrainian capital to shoot the former actor.

On March 9, presidential adviser Mikhail Podolyak stated that more than a dozen assassinations had been foiled thanks to “a very powerful intelligence and counterintelligence network.”
