Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky urged the officials to hang not his portrait in their offices, but the pictures of their children and look into their eyes before making any decision. He said it in his inauguration speech, broadcasted by Ukraine TV.
“I would like that you don’t have my portraits in your offices. Please, because the President is not an icon, not an idol. The President is not an icon. Hang there the pictures of your children, and look into their eyes before every decision,” Zelensky urged.
The inauguration of Volodymyr Zelensky to the post of president of Ukraine took place today, on May 20 at 10:00 Kyiv time.
Zelensky dismissed Ukrainian Parliament at his inauguration and announced early elections after he took an oath of allegiance to the Ukrainian people.
