How Zelensky changed the West's response to Russia

Five days into Russia's brutal invasion of Ukraine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his courageous nation have already done more to transform the West's policy toward Russia than 30 years of post-Cold War summits, policy resets and showdowns with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Ukrainian leader's defiance has inspired and shamed the United States and the European Union into going far further -- and far faster -- in turning Russia into a pariah state than it appeared they were ready to go. By promising weapons and ammunition to Zelensky, 44, the West appears increasingly to be drawn into a possible proxy war with Moscow over Ukraine, even though it is not a NATO member that benefits from the bloc's direct mutual defense agreements.

  1. Ukrainain leaders (like the rest of the Eastern Europe) have traditionally been corrupt and barely competent. And suddenly Zelensky comes along and everyone's shocked at a guy that should've run to Sweden the day the war started but instead acted like a REAL leader.
