    Even as Ukraine enters its 18th month of war against Russia, the nation not only has to contend with aggressors from without, but traitors from within. Sites like ABC News recently revealed an alleged plot within Ukraine to hand over Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's location to Russian forces. Per law enforcement officials, an unnamed woman was apprehended "red-handed" giving over information to Russian personnel regarding Zelensky's itinerary for a trip to Mykolaiv, Ukraine. By all accounts, the Russian military intended to home in on Zelensky's location not to snipe him, poison him, or engage in any sort of subtle assassination, but to conduct a full-blown airstrike on his location.

    The Untold Truth Of Volodymyr Zelensky

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky found himself dealing with a devastating crisis when Russian leader Vladimir Putin announced on February 24, 2022 that he was planning a "special military operation" in Ukraine that was "targeted toward multiple cities." According to Vox, explosions were heard in the capital city, Kyiv, and another city in the eastern part of the country, Kharkiv a short while after Putin made his announcement. A day later, Zelensky said that he knew Russia was focusing on eliminating him from the equation. He said in a statement, "According to the available intelligence, the enemy marked me as a target No. 1 and my family as the target No. 2" (via The New York Times).

In the United States, you might point to Ronald Reagan, former film star, or Donald Trump, who was once a reality TV presenter. In Ukraine, you need to look no further than President Volodymyr Zelensky, who took office in 2019 when he was only 42 years old (via Britannica). The Ukrainian President has already faced significant challenges during his time in office, including the invasion of Ukraine by Russia in February 2022 (via People). By the end of Zelensky's term, it seems clear he'll be a seasoned politician forged by fire. But it might surprise you to learn that he was something of a newbie to politics when he was first elected.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was thrust even further into the international spotlight after the Russian invasion of his country.

President Zelensky, though, is not the only member of Ukraine's country's first family to stay behind after Putin's forces crossed their border. President Volodymyr Zelensky's wife, the first lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelensky, and their two children, also refused to flee, as Daily Mail reports.
