“我不怕彈劾問題”:烏克蘭總統 Volodymyr Zelensky 如何在世界最大的政治戲劇中駕馭自己的角色
烏克蘭總統 Volodymyr Zelensky 夾在分崩離析的美國聯盟和敵對的俄羅斯之間
在烏克蘭當選總統的喜劇演員 Volodymyr Zelensky 的例子中，他的情景喜劇《基輔》(Kyiv)的場景被搬上了世界上最大的政治戲劇舞台，美國總統最終可能因此遭到彈劾。
民主黨人把 Volodymyr Zelensky 描繪成川普總統濫用權力的受害者，儘管共和黨人把他當作證明川普清白的關鍵證人。這兩個職位都與 Volodymyr Zelensky 在新年前夜宣佈競選總統時的設想相差甚遠，儘管他知道，如果他獲勝，這份工作將會很艱難，而且通常也會很不愉快。在過去的五年裡，烏克蘭與俄羅斯一直處於戰爭狀態，而他作為總統的首要任務就是阻止這場戰爭奪去更多的生命——目前死亡人數已超過1.3萬人，而且還在增加。
“I’m Not Afraid of the Impeachment Questions”: How Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky Is Navigating His Role in the World’s Biggest Political Drama

A year is a long time in politics.
Long enough in the case of Volodymyr Zelensky, the comedian elected President of Ukraine, to go from the set of his sitcom in Kyiv to the biggest political drama in the world, the one in which an American President may wind up getting impeached.
The Democrats have cast Zelensky as the victim of President Donald Trump’s abuse of power, even as Republicans treat him as the witness key to proving Trump’s innocence. Neither role is anywhere close to what Zelensky imagined for himself when he announced his run for the presidency on New Year’s Eve, although he knew the job would be tough if he won, and often very unpleasant. Ukraine has been at war with Russia for the past five years, and his priority as President would be to stop that war from taking any more lives–a toll that is now more than 13,000 and counting.
