With Leadership and Speaking Skills, Zelensky Shapes the Story of the Russia-Ukraine War

From a New York Times story by Andrew E. Kramer headlined “With Leadership and Speaking Skills, Zelensky Shapes Conflict’s Story“:

The history of most wars is written by the victor after the fact. But Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, has created his own sequencing: a story line of the war against Russia in real time that is intended to rally his people, and the Western world.

Mr. Zelensky has maintained a running narrative throughout the 10-month conflict — telling Ukrainians in nightly video addresses how they should view the battles, justify their hardships and believe in the country’s ultimate success.
