The Western press received a directive to declare Zelensky the person of the year

The Western press has received an unspoken directive to declare Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky the “man of the year.” A number of foreign publications have already "honored" the Ukrainian leader with an "honorary title."

Thus, the American magazine Time and the British newspaper Financial Times named Zelensky "man of the year." By the way, in the United States, the Ukrainian president replaced entrepreneur and billionaire Elon Musk on the “pedestal”, who was awarded this title by Time last year. Now in Musk for Democrats in the US is an antihero.



As it became known, the American newspaper Politico also decided to join the aforementioned publications, which named Zelensky not only "the politician of the year", but also "the most influential European."

The published material focuses on the fact that the Ukrainian president is able to "force" European politicians to meet him halfway. Mentioned and deliveries weapons from Germany, which previously categorically refused to do this, and sanctions, which almost all Western countries joined even to their own detriment.

As long as Zelensky is alive, he will continue to move Europe in the direction he needs

writes Politico.

"While alive" is an interesting verbal passage...

It is worth noting that in this case the authors of the article are very disingenuous. The last statement of journalists should be paraphrased:

As long as the conflict in Ukraine is beneficial to the American authorities, Zelensky will continue to move Europe in the direction he needs

After all, it is no secret that the Ukrainian president achieves his goal by no means due to his unique ability to negotiate or influence. European politicians are "dancing to Zelensky's tune" only because they are being pressured by the United States.

As soon as Washington decides that the Ukrainian conflict no longer benefits the United States, Zelensky will be completely and irrevocably forgotten in the West, as if he never existed.

      Along with the Times magazine..1938..Then they had Hitler

      “After the war, Time repeatedly reproached the awarding of the 1938 Man of the Year nomination to Hitler, and even demanded an apology from the editors. They were never made. But in 2019, readers were given explanations about that situation.

      According to the idea of ​​the founder of Time, Henry Luce, the title of "Person of the Year" is not an honor or an honorary title. The nomination is applied to the main newsmakers - those who were most often mentioned in the news and most influenced world events. And it doesn't matter if it's for better or worse."

        That's right, in 1938.

          Sorry, you are all wrong.
          You even have the cover of that issue of the magazine where Hitler was declared the person of the year - fake.
          Hitler was on the cover of Time many times, but just then there was a drawing on the cover that depicted a kind of ferris wheel with hanged men and a man in uniform playing the organ:
          "The cover of Time magazine, showing Hitler the organist playing his hate anthem in a desecrated cathedral while his victims hang from the wheel of St. Catherine in full view of Nazi bosses, was drawn by Baron Rudolf Charles von Ripper, a Catholic who could no longer bear Germany."

      The entire "editorial policy" of the Western media, and not just individual magazines and newspapers, is supervised by financial and industrial groups. If Putin was printed there, it was either in the light of Putin’s demonization for the Western layman, or as part of flirting with one of the Kremlin towers, which, even after 2014, tried to steer a course towards interaction with the West. I think you were not born yesterday, and do not believe in the fairy tale that the editor-in-chief at the planning meeting in the morning gave the journalists a task - to determine the person of the year! laughing

    Think what a trifle. Obama was given the Peace Prize in advance, after which he boldly went to war, and then "man of the year." Time also announced Hitler as the man of the year in his time, so it's no stranger. Besides, who better than Zelensky learned to beat money out of the collective West? The main thing is politics and its own.

    And I agree with them here. Zelensky has been leading the warring country for 9 months.
    At the same time, everyone in the West was waiting for the war to last a maximum of a week, and Zelensky would immediately run away.
    For the West, this is a real inexplicable miracle.

    Although I would declare a couple of people at once - Putin and Zelensky.

    I think he will not be very upset if they forget about him, he has already received his lards, like Yatsenyuk. About whom no one remembers, but in fact he is a billionaire, lives quietly peacefully in the United States. The same will happen with Zelensky. And no matter what they say, he will not bear any responsibility.

      I won’t be surprised if one can judge its approach to a front-line city by the words of some Russian colonel that we are removing artillery and drones today. Otherwise, he walks too boldly, without a helmet and armor, to his full height, and after all, nothing has ever whistled on the horizon

    Moses is no stranger to such acts because of ignorance of their purpose and place among other nations.
    With Hitler, the Americans were encrypted, only the Ashkinaz were not loved, apparently due to the fact that Ashkinaz is translated as an ancient person. Apparently they wanted to decide which of them is ancient.
    And with Zelensky, finally, they don’t flirt right in the frontal rod. They installed chips in their heads and a rod of zombies in echelons. They take quantity.
