100 Percent Fed Up reported Friday about the decision by the United States to help Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to leave Kyiv to avoid being captured and/or killed by advancing Russian forces.

On Thursday, the embattled leader, 44, said that his country’s intelligence services believe that he is Russia’s “number one target,” and his family, the second, said he would not back down.

In a video posted on Saturday morning entitled “do not believe the fakes,” Zelensky revealed that he is still in Kyiv.

In a video posted Saturday morning entitled “do not believe the fakes,” Zelensky confirmed he has turned down the offer from the United States of evacuation from the capital city Kyiv, the Ukraine embassy in Britain. His message is telling the public not to believe false reports. He was alive, he said. Kyiv had not fallen.

In a video posted on Saturday morning entitled “do not believe the fakes,” Zelensky revealed that he is still in Kyiv.


“I am here. We are not putting down arms. We will be defending our country because our weapon is truth, and our truth is that this is our land, our country, our children, and we will defend all of this.

“That is it. That’s all I wanted to tell you. Glory to Ukraine.” 

Here is President Zelenky’s original tweet (without captions).

Here is the same video with captions.

“The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride,” Zelensky told the U.S., according to the embassy.

Clay Travis referred to Zelensky as “a badass leader” in his tweet, saying he refused the offer of help to flee:

The U.S. government tried to get Zelensky to flee Kiev per @ap. He refused, saying, “The fight is here. I need ammunition, not a ride.” All time quote. What a bad ass leader this guy is.

From our earlier report: As the Russian military ratcheted up its attacks on Friday, a defiant Zelensky pledged to remain in charge of his government despite grave personal risk. “According to the information we have, the enemy has marked me as target No. 1, my family as target No. 2,” he told Ukrainians in an early-morning address. “They want to destroy Ukraine politically by destroying the head of state.”

Later as Russian forces announced they had cut the city off from the western part of the country and captured strategic locations to Kyiv’s north, the Ukrainian leader emerged with one message:

“We are here,” he said in a recorded video on Friday night, standing in front of the presidency building flanked by his top advisers. “We are in Kyiv. We are protecting Ukraine.”

“Russia will try to break our resistance with all its might,” Zelensky warned.

Ukraine updates tweeted that Ukraine is lucky to have a brave president like Zelensky.


 The response to Zelensky’s decision shows respect for his hands-on solid leadership. 
Oleksiy Sorokin tweeted their respect for the true leader: 

Zelensky rejected the offer made by the U.S. to evacuate him from Kyiv – @washingtonpost. President is in the capital, leading our nation through its darkest hour. Earlier today, he told NATO leaders he might be killed, he’s not lying. I have so much respect for him. True leader!
