WHO IS PRESIDENT ZELENSKY OF UKRAINE? – PART I [EPISODE 208]

March 18, 2022

Like many of you, I have been watching the Russian invasion of Ukraine. I started reading up on Putin to understand why he did what he did. Then a few days into the war, I read that when the U.S. offered to get President Zelensky (Zelenskyy in Ukrainian) out of the country, he replied “The fight is here. I need ammunition, not a ride.” I thought—WOW. That is leadership. I need to know more about this man. So, I read everything I could and that turned into a book in a matter of weeks. The book is here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Need-Ammunition-Not-Ride-Volodymyr-ebook/dp/B09VVW3NSV/ref=sr_1_1?crid=6YHOEVZ983NQ&keywords=i+need+ammunition%2C+not+a+ride&qid=1647625321&s=digital-text&sprefix=%2Cdigital-text%2C4098&sr=1-1 This overview of Zelenskyy’s life covers his formative years and career leading up to the presidency. In Part II, I cover his inauguration speech to the present. If you enjoyed this episode, please consider subscribing and tell others who might benefit from this podcast.
