Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said today that a group of Russians and Ukrainians is planning to stage a coup d’état in Ukraine in early December. The plotters are said to be trying to enlist the help of one of the world’s richest men, industrial magnate Rinat Akhmetov, 55, an ethnic Tartar Muslim from eastern Ukraine. See Report. However, one close observer of the Ukrainian president said scaremongering about his rival Akhmetov was “routine”.
