Ukraine President Zelensky on Thursday night: "This might be the last time you see me alive"

On a conference call with EU leaders Thursday night, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned, "This might be the last time you see me alive," according to The Times of Israel.

One of the leaders on the call, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, told his parliament today that Zelensky is now in hiding, somewhere in Kiev. "We were supposed to talk on the phone this morning, but he was no longer available."

From Times of Israel:

Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson, who was also on last night's call, confirms Walla's [news site] report, telling the Swedish News Agency that "this may have been the last time we saw Zelensky."

Earlier on Thursday, according to HuffPost, Zelensky had said in a video address that "the enemy has identified me as the number one target" while his family was the "number two target."

And from The Washington Post:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky pledged Friday to remain in the capital, Kyiv, even though Russian troops were fighting to enter the city and "the enemy has identified me as the number one target."

"They want to destroy Ukraine politically by destroying the head of state," Zelensky told Ukrainians in a video early Friday.

His family is the No. 2 target, he said, but also remains in Ukraine. "My family is not traitors, but citizens of Ukraine. But I have no right to say where they are now," Zelensky said.

The Ukrainian leader said he was staying "with everyone who is needed for the work of the central government," hours after the Biden administration told U.S. lawmakers that Kyiv could soon fall.
