Times Magazine has named the President of Ukraine as the 2022 Person of the year for fighting fiercely against the Russian invasion.
Zelensky gave daily talks since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 to motivate his nation moreover; his speeches were followed not only by Ukrainians but also by people and governments all across the world.
Time magazine Chief editor Edward Felsenthal called Zelensky’s decision to stay in Kiyv and called his country faithful as the most clear-cut in memory.
“His information offensive shifted the geopolitical weather system, setting off a wave of action that swept the globe,” Felsenthal stated.
He further added that Volodymyr Zelensky galvanized the world in a way we haven’t seen in decades, whether one is filled with hope or terror as one watches the war for Ukraine.
Additionally, he also emerged as the face of opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who was named 2007’s Person of the Year.
“Zelensky shares the 2022 title with the spirit of Ukraine, which is embodied by the countless individuals inside and outside the country who are fighting behind the scenes, including everyday people such as chefs and surgeons,” Felsenthal said.
