Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky named as Time Person of the Year

Washington: On Wednesday Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year,” The Hill reported.

Zelensky was selected by Time magazine earlier this week from a shortlist of ten people or groups for the title. Since the end of February when the war between Russia and Ukraine began, Zelensky has led Ukraine as it fought to fend off a full-scale Russian invasion of the nation, making Ukraine a leader on the international scene, the Hill told.

The Ukrainian President also presided over a string of wins in the conflict that have mostly prevented Russia from making progress and allowed Ukraine to recapture land it had lost. Earlier in November, the Ukrainian masses celebrated the liberation of Kherson city after Ukrainian forces swept into the regional capital and Russian troops retreated to the east.

Russian attacks in Ukraine have damaged about 32,000 civilian targets and more than 700 critical infrastructure facilities since the Russian invasion began in February 2022, according to CNN.

“As one would expect of the terrorists, Russians target civilian targets. To date, about 32,000 such targets have been damaged by Russian missiles and shells. These are primarily private houses or civilian apartment buildings,” Yevhenii Yenin, a Ukrainian diplomat, said in an interview with Ukrainian media recently.

“Only 3 percent of recorded attacks have been on military facilities. As of now, more than 700 critical infrastructure facilities — airfields, bridges, oil depots, electricity substations, etc — all of these got hit,” Yenin said.

Meanwhile, Zelenskyy called on United Nations Security Council to support Ukraine’s ‘peace formula.’

In a recent virtual address to the UNSC (United Nations Security Council), Zelensky asserted that there should be no place in the world for terror. “It’s time to support the Ukrainian peace formula, I repeat. There should be no place for terror in the world at all!” Zelensky said.
