Preliminary publication of the biography. “Political Oscar Zelensky”



Preliminary publication of the biography.  "Political Oscar Zelensky"

ZYelenky made Ukrainians laugh, and now he makes them believe. In free Ukraine without war. A biography of the President of Ukraine – a man who was once a comedian and actor – is now on newsstands in Portugal. The work is written by Sergey Rudenko, editor-in-chief of Espresso TV and a reviewer for Deutsche Welle, and consists of 38 chapters, designed to show a portrait of Vladimir “without makeup”.

O News by the minute exclusively publishes the preface to the biography, now available in Portuguese bookstores.

“Political Oscar Zelensky”

It was eight o’clock in the evening on April 21, 2019, when Volodymyr Zelensky, accompanied by his team, appeared before journalists to the sound of the Servo do Povo series soundtrack. At that moment, it seemed that all 73 percent of Ukrainian voters who supported the winning candidate were singing this simple song along with him.

Ukrainian and foreign journalists, who filled the hall of the Parkovy business center, were impatiently waiting for the triumphant speech of the newly elected president. Zelensky beamed. And, like him, all those who accompanied him on the path to victory: Andriy Bogdan, Dmitry Razumkov, Kirill Timoshenko, Andriy Yermak, Alexander Danilyuk and the President’s wife Elena. In a cloud of confetti hanging in the air, the members of the campaign staff seemed to be ready to dance with joy in front of a noisy hall. “Together we managed to do this…” Zelensky began in his unmistakable voice. Like all actors, when receiving an Oscar, he began by thanking his team, family, wife Elena, and even two cleaning ladies from the campaign headquarters, Oksana and Lyuba. He did not forget to mention the symbolic sector 73 of the Olympic-10 stadium, where, together with his team, he created the famous video of the “Become a stadium” action.

Volodymyr still clung to his role as Vasily Goloborodko, tried to joke, taunt the Security Service of Ukraine, which kept him on his toes throughout the election campaign, and demonstrated optimism. It seemed that, saying goodbye to his career as a comedian, Zelensky expected to be met with the same applause on the political stage. It is understandable, because he is used to popularity and the cries of “Bravo!”, “Bis!”. No wonder. He has already been applauded in the big concert halls of Moscow, Kyiv, Odessa, Jurmala, Minsk and many other cities of the former USSR, which have watched the rise of the star of Vladimir Zelensky since 1997, when he became the winner of a comedy TV show. Entertainment and Insight Club, presented by Alexander Maslyakov.

From day to day, the young actor, who is only 19 years old, woke up famous. Until he became president, he remained a popular actor and dabbled in the Ukrainian public. Could he have imagined on that night of April 21, 2019, after a landslide victory in the presidential election, that in just six months he would hear cries of “Shame!” and “Down with Zelensky!” And this will be said not only by supporters of his main opponent, Petro Poroshenko, but also by many volunteers, the military and politicians. Within months of taking office, he began firing those who had led him to victory. The first to leave was NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Danilyuk, allegedly because he was offended that he was not given the post of prime minister. He was followed by the head of the presidential administration, Andrei Bogdan, who followed his first steps in politics.

Prime Minister Oleksiy Goncharuk and Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka were next to lose their posts. All these personalities were Zelensky’s team, elected by the country on April 21, 2019. Because until the end of the presidential campaign there was not a single politician named Zelensky. Never. He was a talented humorist, manager of the Inter TV channel and the Kvartal 95 studio. The actor who played the primary school teacher Goloborodko, who turned out to be the leader of the country in the series. His image as president was created by his team. Three years ago, the sixth president of Ukraine promised: “I swear I will never let you down.” Since then, we have seen Zelensky in different circumstances. He and his team were accused of unprofessionalism. They were accused of corruption, arrogance and even high treason. However, since February 24, 2022 – the first day of Russian aggression against the Ukrainian state – we have discovered Zelensky, unfamiliar to us; a man who was not afraid to accept Putin’s challenge and lead the resistance of the Ukrainian people to Russian aggression.

The President, who managed in this struggle to unite his supporters and opponents, corrupt and anti-corruption activists, children and adults, people of different nationalities and religious beliefs. The head of state was applauded by European parliaments and the US Congress. The episodes from the life of the sixth president of Ukraine, presented in this book, are the pieces of the puzzle that make up the portrait of Vladimir Zelensky. A man without political experience and relevant knowledge, who promised the Ukrainians that he would change the country. A man trusted by 13.5 million voters. There will be no moralism, partiality or manipulation in this book. Only facts. 12 I tried to create a portrait of the 6th President of Ukraine without makeup. Whether I succeeded or not is for the readers to judge.

Politicians call for investigation into president’s sexual harassment case



Politicians call for investigation into president's sexual harassment case

Brazilian politicians have called for an “investigation” and removal of Caixa Econômica’s federal president, Pedro Duarte Guimarães, after allegations of sexual harassment were made by employees of the Metrópoles website. Reported cases include unauthorized intimate touching, inappropriate approaches, and incompatible job offers.

Republican pre-candidate Simone Tebet (MDB) stressed that “sexual harassment is a crime” and called for “strict and immediate” investigations. The senator also said that the president of the bank should be removed from office immediately until the investigations are completed.

“The bank lives off trust, and the state bank cannot allow a potential harasser to the highest position in the institution,” he wrote on Twitter.

Sen. Randolph Rodriguez (Rede-AP) stressed that the allegations are “serious.” The parliamentarian lamented the case after a week of “destructive news of sexual violence”.

“I just asked that Guimarães be summoned to the Human Rights Commission,” he said.

Preliminary candidate for the Chamber of Deputies in this year’s elections, Guilherme Boulos (PSOL) said that “Bolsonarism does not fail”. The politician also demanded an investigation and punishment.

Federal MP Jandira Fegali (PCdoB-RJ) emphasized that women are in danger everywhere and that “not even in a corporate environment, but in a large state bank” they are saved. The MP said she was “disgusted” and demanded “investigation and punishment.”

Pedro Guimarães has been President of Caixa since the current government came to power. The head of the state-owned company is often present at events near Jair Bolsonaro (PL), in addition to participating several times in the president’s weekly live broadcast.

Why the political core of Bolsonaro's campaign is in an atmosphere of defeat |  Malu Gaspar

Centrão was disappointed not only because General Braga Netto was elected as Jair Bolsonaro’s deputy instead of federal deputy Teresa Cristina (PP-MS).

The so-called “political wing” of the campaign is in a state of awakening, and the reason is Bolsonaro’s own behavior.

Election 2022: MEC crisis consolidates Braga Netto as Bolsonaro’s vice

fuel crisis: The arrival of Paez de Andrade at Petrobras forces the company’s management to outline an “escape plan”

The fact that the President stated in an interview this Sunday that went through the former Minister of Agriculture, in favor of the general, only worsened the situation, which had already been sour since the end of last week.

This is because the president ignored all the recommendations of marketer Duda Lima regarding a trip to the northeast between Thursday and Saturday.

Emergency plan: The core of Bolsonaro’s campaign developed a “cord cutting” strategy with Milton Ribeiro.

On Wednesday, Lima and the active core of the campaign, which includes ministers Ciro Nogueira and Braga Netto, Senator Flavio Bolsonaro (PL-RJ) and PL national president Valdemar da Costa Neto, presented a strategic plan to the President. for the next 100 days of the campaign.

Between late afternoon and Wednesday evening, Lima made a presentation suggesting that Bolsonaro use every opportunity he has in the northeast to defend Auxílio Brasil and other job-creating initiatives to try and convince voters who today decided to support the candidacy of former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT).

The trip to the northeast was fundamental to this work, since it is in this region that Bolsonaro is most often denied. According to the latest Datafolha poll, 55% of Brazilians would not vote for an incumbent president. Among residents of the Northeast, contempt reaches 62%.

The material presented to the president on Wednesday contained a list of programs, as well as what the president should say about each of them in his speeches. After watching the presentation, Bolsonaro praised the plan and said he agreed with everything.

Strategy: How Bolsonaro thinks he can lose his image because of high fuel prices

But in the days that followed, the expected “total focus on the social” turned into a series of speeches about the Milton Ribeiro case, the President’s unfounded suspicions about electronic voting machines and a behind-the-scenes war with the Supreme Court, than about social programs or government achievements. which ultimately went unnoticed.

Friday d.after the release of an audio recording in which the former Minister of Education told his daughter that Bolsonaro had a “premonition” that there would be searches and seizures, the President also canceled a dinner with political leaders from Paraiba.

IEC crisis: The sound is serious and could make Bolsonaro charged with 3 crimes, prosecutors estimate

“The risk of defeat is only increasing,” lamented one of the participants in the attempt to coordinate the work of the campaign yesterday afternoon. “The president does everything to lose” is the assessment that most often sounds around Bolsonaro, but which no one has the courage to express to him directly.

The concern is mutual: Bolsonaro did not privately criticize the LP, the marketing campaign and the legal team, which is why he ignored the advice he received.

In this context, the decision not to appoint Teresa Cristina as an MP is seen in Centrão as a missed opportunity to create positive facts to “shake up the campaign”.

Judicial branch: The judge who saved Ribeiro is STJ’s favorite and has a history of making pro-government decisions.

In addition to attracting the female electorate, another object of rejection of the head of Planalto, Centrão felt that the image of a woman with a more political profile and the image of the director could “soften” the radicalism of a purely ideological ticket.

“In our planning, June was supposed to be a turning point month, but so far we have only accumulated problems,” says the campaign strategist.
