Russia About Volodymyr Zelensky’s TIME Magazine Award

'Russophobic': Russia in Volodymyr Zelensky's TIME magazine

Putin, who was voted Person of the Year by TIME 2007, is increasingly isolated from the West.


The Kremlin on Thursday said TIME magazine’s decision to honor Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as “Person of the Year” reflects the “anti-Russian” trend in Western countries.

The comments come after Zelensky was ranked by the magazine as “Person of the Year” on Wednesday and as “Most Influential” in Europe by Politico on Thursday.

TIME noted that Zelensky’s choice to nominate was “the clearest in memory,” praising the leader’s decision to stay in Kyiv and rally his country amid the Russian onslaught.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “The editorial line of the publication does not go beyond the mainstream of Europe, which is completely blind, anti-Russian and madly anti-Russian.”

The military operation has proved transformative for the 44-year-old former comedian, taking him from a embroiled leader of a struggling non-European country to a household name globally and is a standard bearer of opposition to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

He mobilized Western support for his country in most of his daily foreign phone calls and meetings.
