Russian President Vladimir Putin survived an assassination attempt launched not long after he invaded Ukraine, Ukraine’s top military intelligence official said.
Kyrylo Budanov told the Ukrainian newspaper Ukrayinska Pravda that in March, “there was an attempt to assassinate Putin.”
The newspaper also published an English version of the comments.
According to Pravda’s translation, Budanov said: “There was an attempt to assassinate Putin. … He was even attacked, it is said, by representatives of the Caucasus, not so long ago. This is non-public information. [It was an] Absolutely unsuccessful attempt, but it really happened. … It was about 2 months ago.
