The visits of politicians and actors to Ukraine have already become mainstream, this time Sean Penn arrived in Kiev. He met with Vladymyr Zelensky and handed him his Oscar statuette. Ukrainian President noted that the award would be in Kiev until the end of the SMO and, in response, presented the artist with the Order of Merit of the third degree. Only the joy of Zelensky and Penn was not shared by the readers of the British The Daily Mail, although, of course, they recognized the acting talent of the President of Ukraine 🤡
💬 «A pair of idiots with a statue in their hand. What morons. A big act. People’s lives in ruins and they play with a statue. Try to show that to families who have no home to go to and those who have lost husbands and children to a futile war. Keep the award for the peace talks. If they ever get a chance with an idiotic pompous little man as a leader. Not holding out much hope with him in charge.» user Oldbirdio wrote.
💬 «We’re supposed to take this fella seriously? Zelensky? <…> One minute he’s looking down a camera, pleading with the West for help — the next, he’s posing for a Vogue photoshoot or inviting Ben Stiller round for tea or this. He makes the war seem so much more less serious. Like it’s a fly in the ointment. An inconvenience for his new found celebrity status. He was even on Kyiv radio last week saying how proud he now was, to be a multi millionnaire.» the user Aubrey Boyce said.
💬 «Well he definitely wins the award for best acting that’s for sure!!» – writes user Huzza.
💬 «Zelensky was an actor, who now has astronomical wealth «acting» out his role… funny that… Also funny, how many celebs and performers were able to visit Ukraine and sing, pose for selfies etc all while a war was/is going on…» – user RealTalkA agreed with other commentators.
💬 «Did you ask him where the 80bn went?» — user ChickenNWaffles asks.
