Zelensky, little guy who came to politics almost by accident. A young bright fellow who was a great success as a pretend comic president on TV. His aim was to parody the false claims and corruption in the burgeoning democracy of Ukraine.
This unassuming young man was swept to power in recent free elections by an electorate both amused and interested in his radical and sometime comedic platform. Little did they know that the hungry manic bear from their big and brutal neighbour Russia would range up in a jealous rage, because Zelensky despite many shortfalls remained a bastion of, and turned a friendly face to, the west.
What a revelation Zelensky has been. A character of heroic stature who is standing up to the lunatic bully Putin. A young man who has spurned the option to leave his suffering countrymen and to stand with them in their ghastly plight. He knows he’s Putin’s number one target, yet he stands with his countrymen completely outnumbered and leads by example. Oh! how we wish that there were more leaders like this wonderfully heroic Zelensky!
Putin by contrast is a lunatic has-been who is desperately clinging to ideas that are outmoded; The resurgence of the Soviet empire. An unbalanced sociopathic madman who sits alone behind tables and throne like defences, clear, at least in his own warped mind, that he is the world’s strongest man. He thinks nothing of killing thousands and displacing millions. He thinks nothing of wiping billions from his countrymen’s economy, he thinks nothing of destroying lives and future of millions of people.
He is an easy man to hate. And the hate of Putin is now one of Ukraine’s best weapons, for it will be many years even after the overthrow of Putin that the world will ever relax about dictators like this deranged monster.
Let every free thinking person register their dissent to this monstrous clown, let every free person stand and show support for Zelensky and his countrymen. We fervently hope that the west will protect Mr President Zelensky from that evil tyrant Putin. Please let our thoughts be known to all, who in whatever small way, can help the beleaguered Ukrainians.
