Medvedev: “We did not target Zelenski’s motorcade in Odessa – If we did, we would have achieved it”

The international salos caused by the Russian attack in the , a few meters from the motorcade of Ukrainian President Volontimir Zelenski and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, seems to have reached Moscow, at such a point that he had to “intervention” to entertain the impressions. Russian President’s close associate and Vice President of the Security Council of Russia Medvedev said Thursday 7.3.2024 that Russia had not targeted the missile attack in Odessa the delegation of Ukrainian President Volontimir Zelesnki, using the incredible argument that if Russia targeted Zelenski’s motorcade, it would achieve it. “It’s obvious to everyone: And the fact that there was no blow against the motorcade in Odessa and that if it were a target, we would hit him, ” Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel, “recognizing” – apparently deliberately – the fact that in countless cases Russian rockets or drones explode in homes, as very recently happened again in Odessa. Earlier adviser to the Ukrainian presidency had stated that it cannot be ruled out that the Russian missile strike at the port of Odessa yesterday aimed at the missions of Volontimir Zelensky or Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. “It was really less than 500 meters from us. What was that? … ” said Ihor Zovkva, a high – ranking Ukrainian diplomatic advisor, in an interview with CNN Live. He stated that the rocket was launched by Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in 2014. “It took less than three minutes for the rocket to reach the target, at the point of the port of Odessa,” Zovkva said. “If we had adequate means of anti-aircraft defence, this ballistic missile could have been intercepted,” he added.
