WaPo Deletes Bizarre Zelensky Interview Where He Accuses Paper Of Aiding Russia

• by Tyler Durden

The Ukrainian leader was angry about information revealed by a leaked document, saying sharing such info in Ukraine was a 'felony'...

The Washington Post deleted a portion of an interview with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where he accused the paper of helping Russia by posing a question about information contained in leaked classified documents.

The interview was conducted on May 1 and published on Saturday. An archived version of the interview shows a testy exchange between Zelensky and the Post, which was later deleted.

The Post asked Zelensky about documents they obtained that they said showed members of Ukraine's Main Directorate of Intelligence, known as HUR, had "back-channel contact" with Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of the Russian mercenary force Wagner Group.

Zelensky appeared to think the Post received the information from a Ukrainian and demanded the paper reveal its source.

"I would also like to ask you a question: With which sources from Ukraine do you have contact? Who is talking about the activities of our intelligence? Because this is the most severe felony in our country. Which Ukrainians are you talking to?" he said.
