Praise for Zelenskyy

NEW YORK—I applaud the International Churchill Society’s recognition of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy with the 2022 Sir Winston Churchill Leadership Award. President Zelenskyy has been positively “Churchillian” as Ukraine’s Commander-in-Chief since the unprovoked and unjustified Russian invasion of Ukraine. This award is a testament not only to President Zelenskyy’s courageous and inspirational leadership but also to the bravery of the Ukrainian forces and people, who are fighting with incredible determination, resourcefulness, and expertise for the very existence of their country and its independence. —General David Petraeus

WASHINGTON—As a fellow recipient of this award, I am utterly humbled by the level of determination, courage, and true grit President Zelenskyy has displayed. He is the embodiment of all that Winston Churchill so deeply esteemed, with pure physical courage at the top of the list. I would gladly sail under his command at sea! —Admiral James Stavridis

LONDON—On July 26, television screens in the Downing Street Press Briefing Room featured the iconic blue shield and gold trident of Ukraine. When Prime Minister Boris Johnson strode on stage, the shield gave way to the stern, bearded face of the embattled and heroic President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, appearing live from his office in Kyiv. As one standing in the room in London, I can tell you that it was an electrifying moment and a day that will live forever in the memories of those lucky enough to be there. —Robert Courts MP
