Ukrainian Zelensky appears to be untouched in his first public speech since the Kiev car accident

Volodymyr Zelensky appears to shake off his recent car accident when he was introduced on Thursday as he welcomed the president of the European Commission in Kiev.

The Ukrainian president was not seriously injured in the incident on Wednesday night, his spokesman on social media said, but the cause of the accident is still being investigated.

This happened when Mr. Zelenskiy was returning from the city of Izium, where he celebrated the success of the Ukrainian troops in regaining the territory from the Russians.

“The president was examined by a doctor, no serious injuries were found,” Sergia Nykyforov’s spokesman wrote on social media after the accident. He said that the doctors accompanying Mr. Zelenskiy had provided emergency aid to the driver of a private car and put him in an ambulance.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Thursday that she was impressed by the pace of Ukraine’s progress in its efforts to join the European Union.

Speaking at a joint press conference, Ms Von der Leyen said she would discuss “how to further bring our economies and people together while Ukraine moves towards accession” to the bloc – a stage that is likely to take several years.

“The accession process is on the right track. It’s impressive to see the speed, determination, precision with which you are making progress, ”said Ms Von der Leyen.

She added that the EU must do as much as possible so that Ukraine has “more business, more income”.

Zelenskiy said, meanwhile, that air defense systems are a priority for his country as he tries to protect his cities and towns from Russian attacks.

He also said Ukraine has yet to receive a positive response from Israel regarding the possible supply of air defense systems, adding that the systems previously promised by Germany and the United States have not reached Ukraine either.
