Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky escaped serious injury after being involved in a car accident, a spokesman from Kyiv said on Thursday.
The accident happened when a private vehicle collided with Zelensky’s car, Sergei Nikiforov said, although he did not say when the accident happened.
“The president was examined by a doctor, no serious injuries were found,” he said in a Facebook post.
The The BBC reported the accident happened while Zelensky was traveling with his motorcade in Kyiv.
The Ukrainian leader’s doctors also helped the other driver and put him in an ambulance, Nikiforov said.
An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
Zelensky traveled to the recently liberated town of Izyum on Wednesday, where he pledged to drive all Russian forces out of his country. The bold statement comes as Ukrainian soldiers recaptured territory previously occupied by Moscow-backed forces during the war that began on February 24.
“Our blue-yellow flag is already flying in the unoccupied Izyum. And this will be the case in every Ukrainian town and village,” he said on social media during his visit.
“We are moving in one direction – forward and towards victory.”
