The flight of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to Zmeiny Island is a violation of safety rules and, in combination, a gross mistake. This was announced on Tuesday, August 11, by the deputy secretary of the country’s Security Council, former deputy commander of the Special Operations Forces Sergei Krivonos.
He noted that the Ukrainian leader, accompanied by other representatives of the Ukrainian leadership, was flying in the same helicopter, which, according to Krivonos, can be described as an unprofessional and thoughtless decision.
“In a war, the commander and chief of staff do not fly on the same board, and do not travel in the same car. Even in the absence of hostilities on the territory of the country, this is the law. And here: the whole headquarters of the country in one helicopter is flying over the sea at the sight of Russian missiles, ”reads the text of the message posted on the page of the Ukrainian general on Facebook.
Kryvonos shared such conclusions after reviewing the photographs published on Zelensky’s website: in the presented footage, one can observe how the Ukrainian leader leaves the helicopter with the military.
The day before, on August 10, the Ukrainian general, the former governor of the Luhansk and Transcarpathian regions, Gennady Moskal, announced that Volodymyr Zelenskyy was refusing to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin out of fear of his Russian counterpart. Moskal suggested that for this reason the head of Ukraine would refuse to visit Moscow.
Earlier, in April, Zelensky offered to meet with Putin “anywhere” in Donbass. According to him, the different views of Kiev and Moscow on the past and the future can be viewed not as a problem, but as an opportunity.
