VOLODYMYR Zelensky has been involved in a car crash just hours after vowing to march “forward to victory”.
The Ukrainian President was travelling through Kyiv when the vehicle he was in was struck by another car.
His press secretary Sergii Nykyforov said the heroic leader was not seriously injured in the smash.
He said Zelensky was checked over by medics.
The driver of the car was given emergency treatment at the scene before being handed over ambulance crews.
Police are now investigating the incident.
The smash happened after the lionhearted leader today joined troops in the town of Izium – a former Russian stronghold – days after Putin’s troops fled in their worst defeat since the retreat from Kyiv.
Zelensky vowed to keep storming forward as his troops reached the edge of Russian-held Donbas in a stunning counter-attack.
He said: “We are moving in only one direction – forward and towards victory.”
Zelensky watched a symbolic flag-raising amid the rubble of the bomb-blitzed town and vowed: “Our blue-yellow flag is already flying in de-occupied Izyum.
“It will be so in every Ukrainian city and village.”
Ukraine said it had liberated some 6,000 square kilometres – an area the size of Devon – with last week’s lightning assault that caught Russian troops by surprise.
British and US long-range weapons – including HIMARS and GMLRS rocket launchers – were key to the mission’s success, Ukraine said.
