Ukrainian President Fires Head of State Guards Amid Assassination Plot Allegations

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has taken swift action following the revelation of an alleged assassination plot involving two members of the state guards. Zelenskyy fired the head of the state guards, Serhiy Rud, on Thursday, after the Ukrainian state security service (SBU) uncovered the plot earlier this week. The SBU stated that the assassination attempts were intended as a “gift” for Russian President Vladimir Putin during his recent inauguration.

According to the SBU, the two state guards, both colonels, had planned to kidnap President Zelenskyy and subsequently execute him. The SBU also identified other high-ranking officials, including SBU head Vasyl Maliuk and Kyrylo Budanov, the head of the military intelligence agency, as potential targets. The SBU further alleged that the two implicated guards had shared sensitive information with Russia’s security service, the FSB.

While Moscow has not yet commented on the allegations, this is not the first time President Zelenskyy has faced assassination attempts. Last year, he revealed that at least five Russian plots had been foiled since the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia began.

The Ukrainian president’s administration has been grappling with various challenges in recent months, including a stagnant progress in the war against Russia and accusations of corruption among officials. In February, Zelenskyy replaced General Valerii Zaluzhny with Oleksandr Syrskyii as the new army chief.
