Volodymyr Zelenskyy is the president of Ukraine since 2019. He is a former actor and comedian. In his communications he frequently utilizes social media, particularly Instagram.

Zelenskyy grew up in Kryvyi Rih, a Russian-speaking region in southeastern Ukraine. Prior to his acting career, Zelenskyy obtained a degree in law from the Kyiv National Economic University. He then pursued comedy and created the production company Kvartal 95, which produces films, cartoons, and TV shows including Servant of the People, in which Zelenskyy played the role of president of Ukraine. The series aired from 2015 to 2019 and was immensely popular. A political party bearing the same name as the television show was created in March 2018 by employees of Kvartal 95.

Zelenskyy announced his candidacy for the 2019 Ukrainian presidential election on the New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2018, alongside the New Year’s Eve address of President Petro Poroshenko on 1+1 TV Channel. A political outsider, he had already become one of the frontrunners in opinion polls for the election. He won the election with 73.2% of the vote in the second round, defeating Poroshenko. Identifying as a populist, Zelenskyy has positioned himself as an anti-establishment, anti-corruption figure.

As president, Zelenskyy has been a proponent of e-government and unity between the Ukrainian-speaking and Russian-speaking parts of the country’s population.

Zelenskyy promised to end Ukraine’s protracted conflict with Russia as part of his presidential campaign, and attempted to engage in dialogue with Russian president, Vladimir Putin. During 2021–2022, Zelenskyy’s administration faced an escalation of tensions with Russia, culminating in the launch of an ongoing full-scale Russian invasion in February 2022.

Zelenskyy’s strategy during the Russian military buildup around Ukraine was to calm the Ukrainian populace and assure the international community that Ukraine was not seeking to retaliate. He initially distanced himself from warnings of an imminent war, while also calling for security guarantees and military support from NATO to “withstand” the threat. Following the Russian invasion, Zelenskyy declared martial law across Ukraine and general mobilization, and armed citizens with 18,000 Kalashnikov rifles. is an Amazon Associate website, which means that a small percentage of your purchases gets paid to at no extra cost to you.
