Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was reportedly involved in a car accident in Kyiv on Wednesday.
Zelensky had ‘no serious injuries’ from the collision, his spokesman Sergii Nykyforov wrote on Facebook.
Medics with Zelensky provided the driver with emergency aid and transferred him to an ambulance, it states.
‘The president was examined by a doctor, no serious injuries were found,’ it reads.
Law enforcement officials are investigating the incident.
Zelensky earlier on Wednesday visited the newly liberated city of Izium in Kharkiv. Ukraine recaptured the city from Russia five days prior.
The Ukrainian president sang the national anthem and was photographed raising his country’s flag over a city administrative building during a ceremony in the main square.
‘Earlier, when we looked up, we always looked for the blue sky. Today, when we look up, we are looking for only one thing – the flag of Ukraine,’ said Zelensky on the Telegram channel.
‘Our blue-yellow flag is already flying in the de-occupied Izium. And it will be so in every Ukrainian city and village. We are moving in only one direction – forward and towards victory.’
Izium sustained major damage after six months under Russian occupation.
A large hole and rubble were all that was left where one structure once stood.
‘The view is very shocking, but it is not shocking for me because we began to see the same pictures from Bucha, from the first de-occupied territories,’ Zelensky told reporters. ‘The same destroyed buildings, killed people.’
