Global News published this video item, entitled “Ukraine president Zelensky says coup plot uncovered” – below is their description.

Ukraine has uncovered a plot for an attempted coup due to take place next week, President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Friday during a press conference where he also spoke of a threat of military escalation from Russia.

“We have challenges not only from the Russian Federation and possible escalation – we have big internal challenges. I received information that a coup d’etat will take place in our country on Dec. 1-2,” Zelensky said.

Zelensky did not give details of the coup attempt and did not accuse the Russian state of involvement.

Russia has been building up forces near its border with Ukraine, and Kyiv, the United States and NATO have voiced concerns about a possible Russian attack — a suggestion the Kremlin has dismissed as false and alarmist.

“We are in full control of our borders and are fully prepared for any escalation,” Zelensky said.
