Dec 7 - ZELENSKY Named Time Magazine’s Man of The Year 2022

The call from the President’s office came on a Saturday evening: Be ready to go the next day, an aide said, and pack a toothbrush. There were no details about the destination or how we would get there, but it wasn’t difficult to guess. Only two days earlier, on the 260th day of the invasion of Ukraine, the Russians had retreated from the city of Kherson. It was the only regional capital they had managed to seize since the start of the all-out war in February, and the Kremlin had promised it would forever be a part of Russia. Now Kherson was free, and Volodymyr Zelensky wanted to get there as soon as possible.

His bodyguards were urging him to wait. The Russians had destroyed the city’s infrastructure, leaving it with no water, power, or heat. Its outskirts were littered with mines. Government buildings were rigged with trip wires. On the highway to Kherson, an explosion had destroyed a bridge, rendering it impassable. As they fled, the Russians were also suspected of leaving behind agents and saboteurs who could try to ambush the presidential convoy, to a*sassinate Zelensky or take him hostage. There would be no way to ensure his safety on the central square, where crowds had gathered to celebrate the city’s liberation, within range of Russian artillery.

“My security was 100% against it,” the President told me during the trip. “They took it hard. They can’t control practically anything in a region that has just been de-occupied. So it’s a big risk, and, on my part, a bit reckless.”

Then why do it? The Russian goal at the start of the invasion had been to k*ll or capture Zelensky and decapitate his government. Why give them a chance to strike? The obvious reason had to do with the information war, which had become Zelensky’s specialty. By rolling into the city that Vladimir Putin still claimed as his own, the leader of Ukraine would blow a hole through the stories of conquest and imperial glory that Russian propagandists had been using for months to justify the war. Zelensky’s visit would deepen the embarrassment of the Russian retreat and strengthen the Ukrainian will to carry on through the winter.

But that was not the reason he gave for the trip. “It’s the people,” he told me in a two-hour interview as his private train rolled through the country. “Nine months they’ve been under occupation, without light, without anything. Yes, they’ve had two days of euphoria over their return to Ukraine. But those two days are over.” Soon the long road to recovery would come into view, and many of his citizens would want a return to normality, much faster than the state can deliver it. “They are going to fall into a depression now, and it will be very hard,” Zelensky explained. “As I see it, it’s my duty to go there and show them that Ukraine has returned, that it supports them. Maybe it will give them enough of a boost to last a few more days. But I’m not sure. I don’t lull myself with such illusions.”

Our rendezvous point for the trip was outside a firehouse, in a part of central Kyiv that was without electricity when the photographer and I arrived the following evening. Russian missiles have damaged or destroyed much of Ukraine’s power grid since the start of October, a concerted effort to make the winter as painful as possible for the civilian population. People out walking their dogs used their phones to light the sidewalks. Even the central bazaar was in darkness, though the vendors inside were still selling fresh fruit and cheese, pickles, and pork belly by the glow of electric lanterns. When we passed them, lugging our bulletproof vests and helmets, we made sure to grab some food for the road. “Bring snacks,” one of Zelensky’s aides had warned in a text message. “These trips tend to be very disorganized.”

You wouldn’t know it from the black van that arrived to pick us up, as agreed, at 7:30 p.m. on the dot, and brought us through the checkpoints that surround the government district. The area had become familiar to me since the start of the invasion. For nearly nine months, Zelensky’s team had allowed me to spend much of my time here, working inside the presidential compound and reporting on the ways they have experienced the war and how it has transformed them—and him. The blackouts gave the place a haunted look. Soldiers peered out of pillboxes hidden among the trees, and flashlight beams flickered in the windows of Zelensky’s office on the fourth floor. “Do you have documents on you?” asked one of the guards. “Good, then we’ll know how to mark your grave if you fall behind the convoy.” The joke made his comrades double over with laughter.

That night, the presidential train took about nine hours to travel the length of Ukraine from north to south. Most of the compartments were taken up by the security men, who rested their a*sault rifles on the luggage racks, kicked up their feet, and watched movies on their phones. They had never seen reporters on this train before, and their only request was that we not take any photos of Zelensky’s private carriage. “If the Russians find it, that’s a bull’s-eye,” one of them explained.

Facts it’s defeating I got to learn to tune it out. The negative are glorified, the lazy are praised, the weak are hero’s, and the corrupt are the good guys.

MSM is just state media at this point. They are close friends in real life. The government comes up with the narrative, MSM prints the narrative, and then the government uses the media to say this is popular and what the people want.

I don't know why you're telling me this, most of america knows this which is why the rating for MSM are so fu*king low. This isn't one of those hidden truths, everyone knows MSM is a propganda branch for both parties. Bro in our country its news when officials say something about something, in other countries the claims would be investigated and not taken as news.

If he ever stops pushing whichever agenda they choose him to, they will flood Ukraine news with corruption charges and the people will overthrow him and the next puppet steps up.

Exactly, so is Nixon, so is Stalin, there’s no shortage of “bad” people of the year…
let’s see if you can understand the context of why they were put on there.

Could it possibly be…BECAUSE they were bad people?

Woahhhh

LMAO! I told you guys everything sh*tlibs and their globalist masters do is staged and fake! This Zelensky guy was an actor hand picked by Obama administration and George Soros to just sit there and be the hollywood movie star while laundering all of our tax money. Just like AOC answered a casting call to be in congress. These people are fake and don't actually do anything except smile for the Hollywood cameras and play a role for low info people with no brains (2+ mRNA jabs)

He looked like a hero, being the face of Ukraine.
But, the government officials of Ukraine have been involved with a lot of corruption. The whole Burisma and Hunter Biden situation is all about corruption. Hunter Biden had zero experience with the oil and gas industry before he got onto be a board member of Burisma. A lot of cash was flowing though into his pockets.

Is this actually true? I dunno I'm starting to like him less and less the more I see of him but was he ever proved to be that corrupt? I'd like to see some evidence instead of accusations. Ukraine has always been corrupt that's no secret it was ranked number 2 in Europe next to Russia but all that gets swept under the rug since the proxy war started.
I'd still like to see some sh*t saying him himself is corrupt as fu*k. I personally just think he's an actor and a dumbass, why I don't like him has nothing to do with that
