It is a country that we don’t talk enough about. Of course it is not exactly known for its investment opportunities or prominent scientific and tech scene, right now it is Ukraine’s turn to attract our attention.
Just last weekend a comedian won presidential elections there. At first I thought that it is impossible – a man with no political and international experience couldn’t have possibly won the trust of the people of the country where a war is one of the primary topics.
A Vladimir Zelenskiy is the hero of the day and it seems that the whole world stopped for just a moment to talk about his triumph. A man with no political experience who doesn’t even speak the national language properly is now the president of the country that is standing rival to Russian aggression in several regions [three regions of Ukraine are affected by Russian military invasion with Crimean Peninsula even being annexed by Russia in 2014].
Current Ukrainian president – oligarch Petro Poroshenko already stated that the transfer of power is going to be peaceful and he is going to help the newly elected president with everything he can even though the two politicians are rivals.
