Playing the Role: The Story of Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky


Many in the western media are now openly admitting how it makes perfect sense that Hollywood has rallied around the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. “After all, he’s one of their own,” proclaimed CNN. 

Following his smash hit Ukrainian TV series, “Servant of the People,” the comedian moved straight into politics, and during the last presidential election garnered what is perhaps the biggest-ever ‘protest vote’ in modern political history.

Despite his lack of depth and experience, Zelensky went on to defeat incumbent and Ukrainian oligarch Petro Poroshenko, winning in an electoral landslide as ‘the lesser of two evils.’

This far, he seems to be winning the public relations war in the eyes of western audiences and politicians, but is he fairing as well with Ukrainians?

To date, his policy positions seem to be mirroring that of the US State Department and NATO, as he refuses to seriously negotiate or give any concessions to the Russian government – a stance which has all but guaranteed this war will drag on through the duration of 2022.

Not surprisingly, his synchronization with Washington and Brussels has led many to believe that Zelensky is a full-fledged western puppet.
