House of Representatives and Senate Senate committees warn Thursday-Friday night of direct threat to Kyiv.” In my opinion, the Russians will go to Kyiv imminently,” said Senator Mark Warner, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“They are encircling Kyiv and could then pursue plans to overthrow the government,” said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.
“This would be in line with the information we have before the invasion,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky remains “the prime target of Russian aggression,” US State Department spokesman Ned Price warned on Thursday night, CNN reports.
Zelensky “represents in many ways – even personifies – the democratic aspirations and ambitions of Ukraine, of the Ukrainian people,” Price told CNN’s The Situation Room.
