Zelensky denies that he fled Ukraine

KYIV. March 5 (Interfax-Ukraine) - Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has denied the information that he has run away from the country.

"Every two days it is reported that I fled Ukraine, Kyiv, the [President's Office]. Here I am, you see, in my place. [Chief of the President's Office] Andriy Borisovich [Yermak] is here. Nobody has fled to anywhere. [...] We are working," Zelensky said in his video address on Instagram in the early hours of Saturday.

Russian State Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin earlier said citing Verkhovna Rada members that Zelensky is now in Poland.
