Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a native speaker of the Russian language, once again reminded the world of the propaganda-style theater that’s permeating his war against Russia as he reached for an audio translator when being asked a question by Russian-language media.

Continuing on with the theatrical traditions of his NATO-backed war against Russia, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky reached for his translation earpiece after he was informed of an incoming question from Russian-language media, at a recent sit-down press conference. Zelensky, like roughly half of Ukraine’s population, is a native Russian speaker and owes much of his 2019 electoral support to fellow native Russian speakers, many of whom backed him in hopes of averting a war with Ukraine’s mother country.

Zelensky’s predecessor, the notoriously corrupt Ukrainian nationalist Petro Poroshenko, who was installed following the nation’s 2014 Soros-backed revolution, mocked Zelensky’s status as a native Russian speaker, as well as the way he speaks the Ukrainian language, during the campaign.

In recent years, organized efforts by Ukraine’s government to stamp out the Russian language in Ukraine, as well as the Orthodox Christian faith, have led to a rapid and steep decline in the number of Ukrainian citizens willing to admit that they speak Russian.

Throughout the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian War, the NATO-backed Zelensky government has taken action to nationalize Ukraine’s media, insert anti-Russian materials into school curricula and, together with globalist media outlets, re-write the nation’s history and Russian origins.

During his recent State of the Nation address, Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke about the historical origins of Ukraine, and the long-term ties between the two nations.

“Ukraine was created by Russia or, to be more precise, by Bolshevik, Communist Russia,” Putin said. The communists “did it in a way that was extremely harsh on Russia – by separating, severing what is historically Russian land.”

“Nobody asked the millions of people living there what they thought,” Putin explained, tipping his hat to the democratic referendums in Donbas and Crimea, in which Russian-speaking citizens of Ukraine voted by more than 90% margins to secede and join Russia.
