Despite Promise, The Ukrainian President is Thinking About 2nd Term

Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelenski is considering running for a second term. While he said, he only aspired to serve one time during his campaign to become president.


“I’m thinking about a second term,” the president said at a news conference on Wednesday.

Zelenski, who has been president for a year now, says he is running out of time to implement his intended reforms and plans.

Zelenski was overwhelmingly voted to succeed Petro Poroshenko last year.

The politically inexperienced comedian and actor promised, among other things, to tackle corruption in the country and to end the conflict with Russia due to the annexation of Crimea in 2014.

In his first 12 months, Zelenski faced some significant challenges.

For example, he became a protagonist in the impeachment process against US President Donald Trump, and a Ukrainian passenger plane was shot from the air by Iran.

The president also wants to end the ongoing conflict with the separatists in eastern Ukraine.

He said about this on Wednesday that negotiations, including Russia, Germany and France, will not be resumed until the threat of the coronavirus has passed.
