The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky was reportedly involved in a car accident on Thursday morning as a motorist bumped into the car where the president was inside. But according to his spokesman, the Ukraine President was not badly injured in the accident.
In a statement by his spokesman Sergiy Nikiforov on Facebook, he said “In Kyiv, a passenger car collided with the car of the President of Ukraine and escort vehicles.”
“Medics accompanying the President provided the driver of the passenger car with emergency aid and transferred him to an ambulance,” he continued.
“The president was examined by a doctor, no serious injuries were detected. The law enforcement officers will investigate all the circumstances of the accident.”
In confirmation of his condition, Zelensky in a video posted shortly after the accident said he had just returned from the area around Kharkiv, adding that “almost the entire region is de-occupied” after a lightning counteroffensive to dislodge Russian troops.
“It was an unprecedented movement of our soldiers — the Ukrainians once again managed to do what many thought was impossible,” the Ukraine President said.
