Handling a government is never an easy task. Be responsible for your actions. The premiership requires certain sobriety to contest for. To bear the burden of a state looks fancy on paper, but not in practical terms. Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been the man of the hour. Standing firm for his country and coming to the frontline has made him a hero, not in Reel life but in Real life.
Few people come and make a mark on history. Some may come and hit the jackpot, but it is not always like this. Wars tear you down. They leave nothing for humans to carry on. Strength comes from the state, where your leader stands, and shows its people that I am not in hiding but standing with you on the frontline.
Yes, and Yes, we are talking about Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Prime Minister of Ukraine.
Who is he? And why is he making headlines? In this article, we will share details about him.
Ukraine is an Eastern European country that was previously part of the great USSR. It got independence in 1992.
