TIME Magazine's Person of the Year: Zelensky and the Spirit of Ukraine.
Zelenksy has been named the Times magazine's man of the year.
"Zelensky's success as a wartime leader has been built on the fact that courage is contagious. It spread through the Ukrainian political leadership in the early days of the occupation.
His professional instincts derived from a life as an actor on stage meant he knew how to read a crowd and react to its moods and expectations. Now his audience was the world. He was determined not to let them down.
Courage came to define his fellow Ukrainians as well. Instead of running for their lives, many Ukrainians grabbed whatever weapons they could find and ran to defend their towns and cities against an invading force armed with tanks and attack helicopters,” the TIME article reads.
