There’s never anything really good to come out of warfare, but this Russian invasion of Ukraine does seem to have a very slight silver lining: the world is starting to realize what kind of a tough as nails people the Ukrainians are. And among these tough as nails people fighting for their freedom, one man stands above all – Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Let’s take a look at just how badass this guy is.

There’s never anything really good to come out of warfare, but this Russian invasion of Ukraine does seem to have a very slight silver lining: the world is starting to realize what kind of a tough as nails people the Ukrainians are. They’ve been fighting off overwhelming odds against a nuclear superpower for almost two weeks now and by all reports it even seems like they’re winning.

And among these tough as nails people fighting for their freedom, one man stands above all – Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Let’s take a look at just how badass this guy is.

I Need Ammunition, Not a Ride

By now everyone knows this quote. As Zelenskyy was calling with the US government during the first moments of the Russian invasion, he was offered a safe evacuation. Zelenskyy just replied to that other nuclear superpower that he needs ammunition and not a ride.

Stays With His People

Staying in Ukraine is one thing, but Zelenskyy has actually spent the entire war in Kyiv. His main goal is to defend Ukraine until his dying breath and if he does have to die, he’d rather do it among his people while defending his country.

Not Just a Comedian

People often set Zelenskyy aside because he was a comedian before he became president. Very few people actually know that he has a law degree and his parents were an engineer and cybernetics professor. This guy knows what’s up.
