Presidential Run

Zelenskyy announced his candidature for the 2019 Ukrainian presidential election on 31 December 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 per cent of the vote in the second round, defeating Poroshenko. Identifying as a populist, he has positioned himself as an anti-establishment, anti-corruption figure.

Beginning on New Year’s Eve in 2018, Zelenskyy led an almost entirely virtual presidential campaign. Zelensku went on to win the first round of elections in March before winning the run-off in April.

During his campaign, he continued to tour with Kvartal 95. Finally, on April 21, 2019, he was elected president of Ukraine, unseating incumbent Petro Poroshenko.

President of Ukraine

As Ukrainian president, Zelenskyy is a champion of e-government. He has also been vocal in promoting unity between the Ukrainian- and Russia-speaking parts of his nation. Zelenskyy is known to employ a communication style that emphasizes the use of social media.

Among his accomplishments, he oversaw the elimination of legal immunity for members of Ukraine’s parliament, and worked to curb corruption in government.

Zelenskyy has also fought to end the war in Donbas while resolving that area’s Russia-sponsored separatist movement. However, critics of Zelenskyy claim that he has tried to centralize authority by removing power from Ukrainian oligarchs.

.His communication style heavily utilises social media, particularly Instagram.His party won a landslide victory in a snap legislative election held shortly after his inauguration as president. During his administration, Zelenskyy oversaw the lifting of legal immunity for members of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic recession, and some progress in tackling corruption in Ukraine.

Critics of Zelenskyy claim that in taking power away from the Ukrainian oligarchs, he has sought to centralise authority and strengthen his personal position.

Political Views

Among his political positions, Zelenskyy wanted to develop the Ukrainian economy to attract investment. In terms of foreign policy, he has advocated for Ukraine to become a member of NATO and the EU.

On the domestic front, Zelenskyy supports the free distribution of medical marijuana; free abortions; and the legalization of gambling and prostitution. He has defended many other freedoms in Ukraine, including the freedom for artists to express their political attitudes.

Trump-Ukraine Scandal

In September of 2019, it was found that Donald Trump had engaged in a quid pro quo with Zelenskyy, in which he tried to block payment of a congressionally mandated military aid package to Ukraine in order to pressure Zelenskyy to accuse Trump’s political opponent, Joe Biden. This event led to the Trump-Ukraine scandal and the first impeach of Trump.

Russian Invasion of Ukraine

In the around Setember 2021, the Russian military began to amass around the border of Ukraine. Later, Zelenskyy accused both Russia and Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov of planning to overthrow his government, and made a call for preemptive action.

On February 24, 2022, Vladimir Putin announced that Russia was officially beginning a “military operation” in the Donbas area of Ukraine. Subsequently, Russian missiles were launched at Ukrainian military targets, causing Zelenskyy to declare martial law.

The next day, civilian sites in Ukraine were also being attacked. Rather than evacuate, Zelenskyy chose to stay in the besieged capital in allegiance with his country’s defense forces.

During this tumultuous period of war, he achieved global recognition for his leadership, and has even been compared to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

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.

Zelenskyy’s administration faced an escalation of tensions with Russia in 2021, culminating in the launch of an ongoing full-scale Russian invasion in February 2022. Zelenskyy’s strategy during the Russian military buildup 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.

After the commencement of the invasion, Zelenskyy declared martial law across Ukraine and general mobilisation. His leadership during the crisis won him widespread international admiration, and he has been described as a symbol of Ukrainian resistance.

In a 2014 interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda in Ukraine, Zelenskyy said that he would have liked to pay a visit to Crimea, but would avoid it because “armed people are there”. In August 2014, Zelenskyy performed for Ukrainian troops in Mariupol and later his studio donated a million hryvnias to the Ukrainian army.

Regarding the 2014 Russian annexation of Crimea, Zelenskyy said that, speaking realistically, it would be possible to return Crimea to Ukrainian control only after a regime change in Russia.

In an interview in December 2018, Zelenskyy stated that as president he would try to end the ongoing war in Donbas by negotiating with Russia. As he considered the leaders of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Luhansk People’s Republic (DPR and LPR) to be Russia’s “puppets”, it would “make no sense to speak with them”. He did not rule out holding a referendum on the issue.

In an interview published three days before the 2019 presidential election (on 21 April), Zelenskyy stated that he was against granting the Donbas region “special status”.

In the interview he also said that if he were elected president he would not sign a law on amnesty for the militants of the DPR and LPR.

Zelenskyy has come out against targeting the Russian language in Ukraine and the banning of artists for their political opinions (such as those viewed by the Ukrainian Government as anti-Ukrainian).

In April 2019, he stated that he was not against a Ukrainian language quota (on radio and TV) and that Russian artists “who have turned into (anti-Ukrainian) politicians” should remain banned from entering Ukraine.[191] He simultaneously floated this idea about the Ukrainian language quota: “you can change them a little”.

In response to suggestions to the contrary, he stated in April 2019 that he regarded Russian President Vladimir Putin “as an enemy”.

On 2 May 2019, Zelenskyy wrote on Facebook that “the border is the only thing Russia and Ukraine have in common”.

In August 2021, Zelenskyy warned that the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline between Russia and Germany was “a dangerous weapon, not only for Ukraine but for the whole of Europe
