Or it's a mark of how ....not good the war is going for the Ruskies.
Or he's doing the job a leader of a country should be doing during something like this...getting out and getting as much support as possible for his side. In this day and age, that necessarily includes using the media.

Its not really a War when the Ukraine Leader and his wife have time to fly across the world and sit for a Magazine photo shoot and vacation in Hollywood.

Its more like a cross between TMZ meets GoFundMe...
Tell that to the UKEs getting bombed, raped, murdered, disappeared… Or are you a RUS supporter? You know, Special Operation to denazify and all that.

They haven’t flown to Hollywood.

Zelinsky is about the only world Leader with Balls.

What is this, the Third Red Scare? Anyone who questions any part of the official White House / Big Media narrative must be a Soviet sympathizer? Or are you just afraid on getting on the Clinton's bad side?

I am 100% sure that we can all agree to condemn the invasion of Ukraine in the strongest possible terms and also agree that what is happening to that nation and its people is abhorrent and unjustifiable.

I am also 100% sure that we can also acknowledge the fact that there's a lot more background here than just "Russia evil / Ukraine good". It is a complicated issue that has been decades in the making and that NATO, the US, and Ukraine collectively could have completely avoided if only we had a foreign policy approach that in any way resembled something that an educated and principled adult would support.

Here's a good primer on the background that none of us were taught in history class or informed about by the government media:

I was there with Global Rescue as a paramedic from 2017-2018. I would not go back until a cease fire agreement is reached and an intergovernmental peace agency returns to patroling such as the OSCE. Just my 2 cents

Before this goes off the rails, I recommend everyone take a deep breath and relax.

I haven’t logged in here in ages. Sorry for that.

Went there last April, all my certs in hand and just looking to “do something.” When I arrived, there were a few PMC recruiters and a government dude with a list of “unmet needs.”

I took a 30 day contract via PMC and mostly did critical care transfers Kyiv-Lyiv. Occasionally on to the Poland border. Each time at the border, a nurse/ medic looked into the ambulance and saw blood, 3-8 IVs, ventilator, chest tubes, etc.. and they noped out of that and I was processed to continue on with an escort to a Polish hospital. Extended for a 2nd month, was told at 58 days only one more extention was being allowed but we (me, another American and two Brits) all noped out of staying longer and left after 2 months.

Came under fire twice. Returned fire once.

Edit to add: I’ve seen NGO options to go back and teach TCCC but not on a “paid” basis, merely per-diem. I have twin 3.5 year old boys that object to that
