Z is for Zelenskyy, Russia invaded Ukraine

This year's theme for my A-to-Z Blogging Challenge is Significant Events from 2021 and the first 3 months of 2022.

Welcome to the last post of the 2022 A-to-Z Blogging Challenge!

On February 24, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine.  The President of Ukraine is Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy, age 44, formerly an actor and comedian.

In 2015-2018, Zelenskyy starred in a television series called Servant of the People, where he played the president of Ukraine.  Then he began a political party called Servant of the People, and ran for election to be the actual president of Ukraine.  He won with 73% of the vote.

You can count me as someone who admires this man's love of his country and his refusal to flee when Russia invaded.  This is how a leader should lead!
