Zelenskyi Is Bad for the Show

EU and US Expect Action on Oligarchs and Russia

6 April 2021

After a furious pace in the months after the inauguration, the Zelenskyi presidency has been in the doldrums. With his popular support deteriorating, the leading face of the Servant of the People party has to push for more consistent political, economic and foreign policy measures in response to a destabilising Russia and in line with the EU’s ambitions expressed through the Eastern Partnership.

Volodymyr Zelenskyi’s electoral agenda in 2019 was truly inspiring. It offered a bright light at the end of the tunnel marked by the Russian occupation of Crimea, the armed conflict in Donbas, overwhelming corruption and a poor social situation in Ukraine.

Zelenskyi presented a vision in which people would not have to leave abroad for work, corrupt officials would receive long jail terms and official positions are going to be distributed solely based on the intelligence, education and moral integrity of a candidate.

Along those lines, he promised to transform the political system, protect national interests, end the war in Donbas, implement reforms and eradicate corruption. Almost three-quarters of voters believed it takes a showperson to make this all happen.
