President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky emphasizes that if the disturbance of the Department of the State Guard (DSG) members is be proved, they will be prosecuted, as he writes on his Facebook page.

“Recently a lot of new messages relating to “treason” have appeared in social media. It is connected with my promise to refuse from corteges, which I didn’t keep. Now I tell everyone: there are two cars during the President’s transportation on Ukrainian roads: presidential car and security car. Sometimes there might be tone more car with the attendants, team members, and security. These cars stop at all lights, get into traffic jams, nobody turns the light on and do other things. That is why it seems too hard for FB community to learn this issue. President is a common traffic participant like everyone else,” the President wrote.

Zelensky pointed out that road traffic accident in Zaporizhia region, which happened on July 14, is unacceptable.

“If the DSG workers, who hit the minibus, violated driving regulations and they are found guilty of the car accident, they will be prosecuted. Thank God, everybody is alive,” the President noted.

The President gave official comments on the traffic jam on Pozniaky (Kyiv) a few days ago.

“On July 11, Prime Minister of Moldova Maia Sandu visited Kyiv. The transportation of the high official guest was provided according to the diplomatic etiquette and international obligations of Ukraine. Therefore, en-route traffic was temporarily limited,” he explained.

As it was reported earlier, the accident with the President’s cortege took place in Zaporizhia region, when the staff of the President’s security was coming back to Kyiv. Two Volkswagen Touareg cars crashed into buses transporting children to a health improvement camp. The president’s car was not among the crashed ones. No victims reported.

The administrative report was drowned up against the drivers of the president’s cortege.
