Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny have landed on the Time magazine's annual 100 most influential people list.
"In President Zelensky, the people of Ukraine have a leader worthy of their bravery and resilience, as citizens across the country – shopkeepers and soldiers, tailors and truck drivers – fight for their homes and their freedom," U.S. President Joe Biden wrote in his characteristics of Zelensky for the Time Magazine.
Zaluzhny's profile states that "his work will be remembered by history."
"In the midst of this chaos, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny has emerged as the military mind his country needed,” said U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley. “His leadership enabled the Ukrainian armed forces to adapt quickly with battlefield initiative against the Russians."
The list also includes U.S. President Joe Biden, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde, and many others.
