Ukrainian actor Vladimir Zelensky has decided to run for the post of President of Ukraine. Of its intention to participate in elections, he said during a festive “Evening quarter” on channel “1+1”.

“I decided to be Frank with you, Vladimir Zelensky. Now in Ukraine a situation where every Ukrainian has three paths. The first way is to live as we live, to go with the flow. And that’s fine, it’s the choice of everyone. The second way to pack your things and go to another country to earn money to send to their friends and relatives. And that’s okay too. But there is a third way – to try to change something in Ukraine. And I chose him,” said Zelensky.
