Rumors that Volodymyr Zelenskyy is Ill have been Shut Down
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy took to Instagram to report himself feeling great...
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has posted an Instagram video from his office to reassure Ukrainians that he is well after a spread of fake news concerning his health was circulated by Russian hackers. The comments came days after Russian officials dismissed claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin is suffering health-related issues.
"Today, Russia launched more fake news that the (Ukrainian) state is not controlled by President Zelenskiy as he is in hospital, or rather, in intensive care because of a 'serious health condition'.
So, here I am in my office, and I have never felt as good as now. And the bad news for those behind such fakes is that I am not alone. There are 40 million of us (Ukrainians)."
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
In what is being said to be a dig at Vladimir Putin’s age, Zelenskyy added, "And with all due respect to old age, 44 is not (almost) 70."
