As the Americans insist, human rights abuses may occur in Ukraine (including torture and civilian abduction), and those on special lists may be killed or taken to camps. UN Human Rights Council The letter to the High Commissioner stated that the United States had “credible information” that the Russians would not take human lives into account and that they would like to fight against civilians taking to the streets against the invasion.
Creation of a “death list” under the auspices of Russian counter-intelligence?
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov last week categorically denied that there was a “death list.” However, according to the Americans, the list of names was created and its creator and chief executive is the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), which is mainly related to counter-intelligence operations carried out within the Russian Federation. In fact, the FSB is also active abroad and conducts somewhat intelligence operations. Therefore, his involvement in the development of the alleged “death list” falls within the scope of the capabilities of those mentioned above. Service.
According to a report by a British think tank Royal United Services Company (RUSI), the Ukrainian counter-intelligence service has recently acknowledged suspicious FSB activity in Ukraine. The activities of the Russian secret service carried out in some regions were originally aimed at determining the attitude of the local community towards Russia. Over time, Ukrainian counter-intelligence officials noticed that the FSB was actually trying to determine residents’ attitudes to specific officers and local authorities. It is clear that the Russians are making a list of people they can trust and a list of people they can oppose during the invasion.

According to RUSI, the database of one of the Ukrainian insurance companies helped Russian officials compile the list. Data was hijacked during a massive cyber attack in January. Thanks to the FSB database, retaining the addresses of significant sections of Ukrainian citizens will facilitate the achievement of “targets” for relevant categories. This includes only “obvious” targets such as politicians and journalists. Religious leaders, ethnic minorities or LGBT people may also be at risk.
President of Ukraine, Goal Number One
During Friday’s speech, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stressed that he was “the main target of the Russians who, according to the information at hand, wanted to assassinate a political leader and destroy Ukraine politically.” According to the British newspaper “The Times – There are 400 Russian mercenaries in Kiev known as the Wagner group who hunt down Volodymyr Zhelensky.. Immediately on the “death list” is the president and his family. Zhelensky, who was staying in Ukraine, noted last week that his relatives had not left their homeland, despite the threat. However, for obvious reasons, their whereabouts are unknown.
According to information received by the Washington Post, the Americans have informed Zhelensky not only about the threats to Ukraine, but also about the immense danger that awaits him. In order to provide relevant information to Ukrainians and other partners who wish to assist, the Americans decided to reduce the classified classification provided to certain reports.
Zelenskiy already met with CIA Director William J. in January. Had the opportunity to talk to Burns about his safety, he appeared in person in Kiev. The Ukrainian president was still skeptical of the circumstances under which the Russians could kill him. However, at that time the people in Kiev were on a mission to assassinate the head of state.
The CIA is ready to oust Zhelensky
According to the Washington Post, US intelligence services are ready to help oust the Ukrainian president. Naturally, Ukrainian services are also ready, but Zhelensky, despite the obvious threat today, in video material released on the Internet, promises that he will be in Kiev.
The material, released Friday, clearly shows the president standing with his allies (including Prime Minister Denis Schmidt) in front of the administration building on Bangova Street in Kiev. Zelenskiy was praised by many for his heroic demeanor, however, as many experts point out, his results make him an easy target for the Russians.
There are two reasons why the “death list” was created, Americans say. The first is an attempt to reduce popular opposition, and the second is to form a pro-Russian government.
