Former CIA Director General David Petraeus has joined “Jesse Watters Primetime” to discuss protecting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during the Russian invasion.
GEN. DAVID PETREE: We have agencies and departments that exist to collect intelligence from all different sources and using all different methods, and I’m absolutely confident that all of these are being leveraged, merged and provided to our Ukrainian partners. It is in the interest of the whole world that Zelenskyy stays alive. Fortunately, it was his security service which, as you noted, foiled the plot of the Chechens sent to assassinate him. We know from reports of those who met him that getting to him properly involves changing vehicles, putting hoods on your head, being very unclear about where the one finds oneself, and then – only then – does the president appear, that he moves regularly, of course, in bunkers a good part of the time and so on. So, I think again, not only him, not only us and not only his people recognize this importance. Again, I think other agencies around the world are doing the same thing. We always work with our intelligence partners, our defense partners, and I’m sure that’s the case in this situation.
