Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in a conversation with Bloomberg journalists, has warned of Vladimir Putin's plans to sow chaos and division within Ukrainian society.
He revealed that the Kremlin is preparing for what he termed "Maidan 3," referring to a new plan to destabilize Ukraine.
Zelensky conveyed information about the Kremlin's latest plans, suggesting that since Russia cannot defeat Ukraine militarily, it might focus on societal division. This strategy is named "Maidan 3," in reference to the main square in Kyiv, which was the center of two revolutions - the Orange Revolution in 2004 and the Revolution of Dignity in 2014.
Zelensky's Warning: A possible coup in Ukraine
Zelensky spoke of a potential coup in Ukraine aimed at removing the president. He assured that he would not yield and would not agree to a freeze in the war with Russia. He is currently seeking further ammunition and weapon supplies from the West.
Russia's information attack plan
According to the RBK Ukraine portal, Russia plans a massive information attack for November-December this year. TVN24.pl adds that the disinformation operation is reportedly overseen by Sergei Kiriyenko, deputy head of President Vladimir Putin's administration, with ideology from Vladislav Surkov, a former Putin advisor and one of the authors of the Novorossiya project.
Zelensky expressed concern about the slowing pace of ammunition and weapons deliveries from the West for the Ukrainian military. He highlighted that the focus of the United States and other countries on the Israel-Hamas war might negatively impact the regular supply capabilities for authorities in Kyiv, as reported by Radio ZET.
