The New York Times published information that Kyiv tried to kill the chief General Staff of the RF Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov, when he was in the NVO zone. In the Office of the President of Ukraine Alexey Arestovich confirms the information and gives details.

According to him, the attempt was made approximately in April or May 2022 in Izyum. The Armed Forces of Ukraine “covered the headquarters”, many guards and officers died, but Gerasimov left earlier, Arestovich reports.

“Usually the armed forces of Ukraine do not ask. They just shoot. Most likely, the Americans knew where he was. Our military is without sentiment. <...> We beat tall Russian military leaders who came to our territory, beat them, and time, very diligently. <...> Gerasimov was in Izyum, and we hit Gerasimov. It was like that, “Arestovich admits in an interview with Markov Feigin*.
