President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky assures that there will be no bloodshed in case of an organization of mass actions, which, according to him, the fifth president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko is pushing to. Zelensky said this during a press marathon broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV Channel.

"There is only one mistake Poroshenko makes: he thinks that he may be the leader of another Maidan. And he is ready, you have seen the same statement from President Steinmeier himself, the German side, the French side, and many European media, they are shocked. Therefore, his rhetoric is changing, just as his status has changed, but the only thing that he forgets is that he is no longer the president. Well, not even that he forgets. I am afraid that he does not believe it. I am afraid that there is a problem on the physical level, so he is against withdrawal, it seems to him that there may be another Maidan because of that. Moreover, he pushes people to step by step, and he pushes people with his actions and his media resources," Zelensky said.

"About the whole Maidan and so on. I'm not afraid of anything. At any moment, at any second, if society does not want my team to continue, does not want me to be president, see, there will be no bloodshed, I am very calm about this," Zelensky summed up.

As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky will take part in a press marathon on October 10. According to the press service of the President, the event will start at 10:00 a.m. at Kyiv Food Market.
