Ukraine’s president is becoming an author, of sorts.
A collection of wartime speeches by Volodymyr Zelenskyy will be available December 6.
A Message from Ukraine will be published by Penguin Random House division Crown.
In a statement, Zelenskyy said “supporting Ukraine is not a trend, a meme or a viral challenge.” The proceeds will go to United24, the initiative the President launched to coordinate charitable donations to his country.
Zelenskyy himself chose 16 speeches that he hopes will help readers understand Ukrainians; their aspirations, principles, and values.
