Arestovich: Zelensky with his statement about a coup in Ukraine prevented it in order to prevent it. This was stated by the representative of the Office of the President of Ukraine Oleksiy Arestovich on the air of the Dom TV channel.
According to him, “a coup is good when it’s sudden,” but Zelensky, having announced it in advance, neutralized any attempts to commit it. He recalled a Buddhist proverb that says that “voiced demons are half weak.” Arestovich said that the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) understands the situation.
On December 1, a rally of opponents of the current president of the country took place on Independence Square in Kiev. About 700 people took part in it, 50 paddy wagons and many police officers were pulled to the site. Zelensky said that on this day the conspirators had prepared a coup d'etat in the country.
On November 30, the head of the cybersecurity department of the SBU, Ilya Vityuk, spoke about the progress of the criminal investigation into the preparation of a coup d'etat, which was allegedly prepared by individual citizens of Russia and Ukraine. In particular, he pointed out that it is too early to talk about any specific suspects or detentions within the framework of the investigation. He stressed that he could not give full information about how or from whom the information about the impending coup was obtained, since it was limited by the secret of the investigation.
