Ukraine currently has its current president Petro Poroshenko, who was reelected earlier this year after serving two terms. According to Politifact, there were only seven candidates running against him, so most experts agree he won fairly easily. He came into office promising to fight corruption and improve the economy, but many say his administration hasn’t done enough to achieve those goals.
Poroshenko’s popularity took a hit when Russia started supporting armed separatists in the east of the country in 2014. Since then, thousands of civilians have died in fighting between rebel forces and government troops.

Some Ukrainians see Zelensky as a breath of fresh air because he doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously. His show Servant of the People, which debuted last month, offers a comedic view of modern life in Ukraine. Many believe that he could help tackle issues such as corruption and improve the country’s infrastructure.
Another presidential hopeful, Yulia Tymoshenko, ran against Poroshenko in the 2010 election. She promised to focus heavily on improving living conditions for ordinary citizens if she won. However, according to NPR, her campaign was plagued by allegations of corruption. As a result, she ended up losing to Poroshenko.
So far, no one knows exactly how Zelensky plans to change the government, but he has already proven he isn’t afraid to be direct online. That earned him plenty of attention during his run for office.

As previously mentioned, Zelensky joined Twitter back in 2018. Since then, he’s gained more than 2 million followers. Despite having relatively little political experience before getting elected, he’s made quite a name for himself.
Here are just a few examples of what he’s posted over the past few years.
1) This tweet shows a photo of Zelensky with a sign that says “The Only Possible Leader Is Me.”
2) An image of Zelensky holding a piece of paper with big numbers written on it got shared across the internet. The caption said “Dear friends, today is the day of elections. Please vote for me!”
3) During a recent appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Zelensky showed off his new toy — a selfie stick. He told Colbert that he likes selfies because they give him a better chance to get noticed.
4) This meme claims that Zelensky looks like someone who lives inside a cereal box. It features a picture of a man wearing a blue suit with the caption “My house, my rules.”

In addition to making memes, Zelensky’s Twitter feed serves as a platform for parody accounts. There are definitely a lot of fake ones out there, but some real users do create fun takes on the original posts. Following are just a couple of examples.
1) This account uses the same logo as Zelensky’s official page, except it changes the color scheme. Underneath the profile picture are the words “Servant of the People.”
2) This account takes aim at Zelensky’s frequent posts about his personal life. It often comments on previous tweets using the phrase “Please tell us everything.”
3) This user creates funny responses to Zelensky’s “Thank You” tweets. They usually include sarcastic messages like “You’re welcome?” or “No problem.”
4) This account shares Zelensky’s quote “The truth hurts.” But instead of showing a photo of the politician, it puts a GIF of Justin Bieber saying “the truth does hurt” in place.
It’s clear that Zelensky’s online presence is full of jokes and parodies. And hopefully, that continues well beyond his presidency.
