Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky says he has survived "five or six" assassination attempts since Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.
But the 45-year-old laughed off the plots and said they were like Covid and got easier after the first time.
"The first time is interesting," he told The Sun during an exclusive interview in Kyiv.
"After that, it’s like Covid. First of all, people don’t know what to do and it’s scary.
"But after that, it’s just intelligence sharing it with you. We can live with it."
When asked if Ukrainian forces would ever assassinate Putin if they got the chance, Zelensky said Ukraine has the right to defend its land and "that’s it".
