The Biden administration advised Zelensky to flee Ukraine as his country faces the brunt of a Russian invasion with him singled out as "target number one." The U.S. even offered to evacuate him from Kyiv.
Zelensky replied by saying he's not going anywhere:
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has turned down an offer from the United States of evacuation from the capital city Kyiv, the Ukraine embassy in Britain said Saturday on Twitter.
"The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride," Zelensky told the US, according to the embassy.
Zelensky also posted the following video to Twitter this morning, titled "Do not believe the fakes," showing that he is still in Kyiv, Ukraine's capital city:
Here's what he said:
"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."
