Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky comes from a Jewish Ukrainian family. His great grand father had 3 brothers and the were each murdered by the Nazis.
40 years later his grandson would go on to become President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Recently the United States Government was
prepared to help Ukrainian President leave Kyiv to avoid being captured or killed by advancing Russian forces, according to U.S. and Ukrainian officials. But so far, the president has refused to leave, and stated that "The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride," Among the brave citizens of Ukraine is former Miss Grand Ukraine
who changed from high heels to Army boots to protect her nation against the Russia Invasion.
As the Russian military escalated its attacks on Friday, a defiant Zelensky pledged to remain in charge of his government despite grave personal risk. “According to the information we have, the enemy has marked me as target No. 1, my family as target No. 2,” he told Ukrainians in an early-morning address. “They want to destroy Ukraine politically by destroying the head of state.”
