Top quotes by Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine

Who is Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine?

Here are some top quotes by Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine.

Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy is the current President of Ukraine. From being an actor who acted as the President of Ukraine on a television series in 2015, Servant of the People, to becoming a real time President of Ukraine in 2019. President Zelenskyy comes a long way.

What is currently the situation in Ukraine?

Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s ruled Ukraine is currently under attack. There is a widespread mayhem in Europe that some are holding as declaration of the third world war.

Once, Ukraine was a part of USSR or Soviet Union. Although, Soviet Union collapses in 1991. Surprisingly, it was after Chernobyl tragedy in now Ukraine’s territory in 1986. Moreover, many attribute USSR’s fall to this nuclear tragedy which could have enveloped the entire Europe but fortunately did not.

Now then Russia launches a military operation against Ukraine, the former is intervening in a sovereign nation’s functioning and ransacking its integrity. The UN would call it an unprovoked war. The US says that it shall have its repercussions. However, there are still chances that the war or precisely, the world war 3, will not occur. It is because the US declines to intervene further citing its non-interventionist approach under Biden’s rule. Biden is renowned for non-interventionist approach as, recently, he withdrew years long military deployment from Afghanistan.

Then, comes the formation of NATO among Western European nations and included US to strengthen the alliance. Its formation was for mutual security against eastern Europe’s attempts to invade. Then, Eastern Europe stood for Nazi Germany and Soviet Union. Although, after the disintegration of USSR, many Eastern European nations are joining NATO.

Moreover, Ukraine is a prospect member of NATO. Russia ardently demands a security against it.

His history and how it influences some of the quotes by Volodymyr Zelenskyy

The 44 years old president of Ukraine was born in 1978 in a Russian speaking area of South Ukraine, Kryvyi Rih. For a significant part of his life, he pursued his career as an actor. However, his alma matter is a specialisation in law from Kyiv National Economic University.

He used to act as a comedian for the production house, Kvartal 95. Later, he was the lead actor in a television series called Servant of the People. He acted as the president of Ukraine in the show. Following his association with Kvartal 95, his exposure to mainstream media is minimal. Even during his election campaign he took to YouTube and social media.

Moreover, he announced that he would run as a candidate for 2019 electoral in Ukraine for presidency through an evening show of Kvartal 95 on a channel named, 1+1.

Further, his party is named after the show in which he acted as the president, Servant of the People. His political party is a conservative party.

On victory, France, US made calls and congratulated Zelenskyy on his victory.

Note worthy is the point that in history, Volodymyr Zelenskyy is the first Jewish president of Ukraine. He is one of two Jewish to hold office in Ukraine as either president or prime minister. Volodymyr Groysman was another Jew who was the prime minister of Ukraine.

Ideals of Zelenskyy

Zelenskyy’s ideology is a populist one. It claims to stand for the people against any oligarchical rule. It aims to displace corruption and authority for people’s rule. However, critics argue that he is an authoritarian power who has centralised it and is seen in contrast to federation. It, time and again, assures international community that it is not aggressive. Moreover, it even tried to establish peace with Russian government. After getting elected, Zelenskyy had promised to work on alleviation of relationship with Russia.

Zelenskyy tries to establish peace between Russian and Ukrainian speaking population of Ukraine. Language has always been a factor to drift a nation apart and divide it. Even today in Ukraine there are separatist regions like Donetsk and Luhansk.

Further, Ukranian government is a popular e-government. They use social media and electronic media to communicate with the people of Ukraine.

A few quotes by Volodymyr Zelenskyy

“Could we imagine back then that a new way of life would in fact be a fight for survival? im not a politician, Im a simple man who has come to break that system.”

“People have grown tired of old guard, so to say”

“Corruption is everywhere. We need to reduce its impact on the government, on peoples lives.”

These show that he tries to identify with common people and proclaim his populist ideology.


“A showman can become a president but it is sad that a president became a showman.”

He hails from an acting background afterall.


Interestingly, the source of these quotations of Zelenskyy is Fox News which is a conservative American news channel.
