Comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy is polling number three among candidates allowed by President Poroshenko to run against him, for President.  Zelenskiy as presumably all expats know, is already President of a popular TV show and his apparent issue is corruption.  His show is popular in Russia, which suggests it is not particularly patriotic in Ukraine. 
So, who will it be:  Gas Princess, Chocolateer President, or Sitcom President? 
https://forward.com/culture/417392/volodymyr-zelenskiy-plays-ukraines-president-on-tv-now-hes-running/

The next linked story discusses Zelenskiy and what he is about in more detail.  Zelensky's patron appears to be Oligarch Kolomoisky currently on the lamb in Israil, since the nationalization of his personal piggybank, Privat Bank which cost Ukraine and Western Sponsors, $5 Billion. 
Zelensky is clearly on Ukraine's side in the war, as was Kolomoisky who supported the volunteer battalions.  And Zelenskiy seems to have given up some of his Russian business activity at the beginning of the war.
But, on the other hand, he seems to think he can make a deal of some sort, with the Kremlin-based midget and that his business acumen will succeed where others have failed.

Vakarchuk polled 4% on this October poll.  That's half of Zelenskiy at the time.  Everyone wants to be a comedian.

Note that the Pig Ignorant are no laughing matter in Ukrainian elections.

According to the Ukrainian Constitution, Zelensky is not a citizen of Ukraine! He has not lived there for the last 10 years and, happily or fortunately, he cannot stand.

Adding an"i" to his surname in an attempt to Ukrainianize him doesn't wash.

Might as well have a comedian as President. Politics there is a joke after all.
But please not that guy. Sick of his face and voice. Typical for Ukraine his face is on everything, vodka ads, stomach pill ads, viagra ads, and that's just commercials FML

I'm sure the story will come out that Volodymyr Zelensky is a known homosexual pedophile who likes little boys.

People get the government they deserve, the Ukraine deserves a joke.

So, you are saying he can make a deal with the Kremlin-based midget?

Well since he does not qualify to run it is a moot point.
Peace is the failure of the military to convince the government that it can and should kick its enemies ass.

Hard to imagine that he doesn't live here since he has been on a tv show here for years and years that originated in Ukraine and the weekly runs out of Kyiv.

Up until about 2014 Zelenskiy often visited Russia, performed at birthday parties for Oligarchs and made films, did TV appearances.  Maybe he owns property in Russia and making  a film, even a bad one, can take lots of time.  Poroshenko is doubtless floating a trial balloon for a pretext to disqualify yet another opponent.

Before 2014 most entertainers from Ukraine visited Russia, and MAYBE owns property is just a MAYBE.

How do visits to Russia make your not avaliable for President Elections ?
As i understood his wife have a Russian Familiy, a Familiy they infact split with after the 2014 due to the Russian Family was on the Russian side and he is on the Ukranian side of the war.
There was a wedding after 2014 where only his Wife's Father attended in Russia and after he said it was misstake to go because they started to discuss ukrain vs russian.


Zelenskiy is not my Cup of tea, hes a good actor/commedian and he is probably on eof the better Ukranians who infact want to change Things to the better for the general people here.
I just think it will be the smartest move to elect him now in wartime, and maybe he even can be fault tha Timoshenkov will win because of some people will vote on him.

BUT he has ZERO experience. ZERO. Has he ever run a business, been elected to run a city, held any government post, member of the Rada? NO. Just a actor that parrots what the writers tell him to say in front of the cameras.  Would he have ANY supporters in the RADA? Unlikely. He would be a Lame Duck President even before he might be elected.

He is a wasted vote.

We were TOLD by a usually reliable source he, Zelensky, had a Russian passport, hence he would have dual nationality which Ukraine prohibits UNLESS, THAT IS, you are a serving member of the Rada. Apologies should this stem from a babushka broadcast.

Further, Zelensky appears to have the support of the odious Ihor Kolomoisky (the sheet who milked Privat Bank dry with all those fictitious loans to the point the bank needed a serious bailout). Support from Kolomoisky would, in my view, suggest something seriously bad is planned.
