Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is the second-largest European country after Russia, which it borders to the east and northeast. During the Middle Ages, Ukraine was the site of early Slavic expansion and the area later became a key centre of East Slavic culture under the state of Kyivan Rus', which emerged in the 9th century. The area was then contested, divided, and ruled by a variety of external powers for the next 600 years, including the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Austrian Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and the Tsardom of Russia. Ukrainian nationalism developed, and following the Russian Revolution in 1917, the short-lived Ukrainian People's Republic was formed. The Bolsheviks consolidated control over much of the former empire and established the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. Ukraine gained independence in 1991 as the Soviet Union dissolved, and declared itself neutral. A series of mass demonstrations, known as the Euromaidan, led to the establishment of a new government in 2014 after a revolution. Russia then unilaterally annexed Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula; and pro-Russian unrest culminated in a war between Russian-backed separatists and government forces in eastern Ukraine. Russia later launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy[]

Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy is a Ukrainian politician who has served as the sixth president of Ukraine since 2019. Born to a Ukrainian Jewish family and a former comedian and actor, his administration faced an escalation of tensions with Russia in 2021, culminating in the launch of an ongoing full-scale Russian invasion in February 2022. Zelenskyy's strategy during the Russian military buildup was to calm the Ukrainian populace and assure the international community that Ukraine was not seeking to retaliate. After the start of the invasion, Zelenskyy declared martial law across Ukraine and a general mobilisation of the armed forces. His leadership during the crisis has won him widespread international praise, and he has been described as a symbol of the Ukrainian resistance. Zelenskyy was named the Time Person of the Year for 2022 and opinion polls in Ukraine have ranked him as Ukraine's greatest president.

Dawn of Man[]

"Slava Ukraini, courageous Volodymyr Zelenskyy, president and staunch defender of Ukraine. A former comedian, life imitated art when you were elected president of Ukraine after playing a teacher-elected-president of Ukraine in your comedy, Servant of the People. But your real presidency was far more turbulent than your one on TV. After spending your first few years rooting out corruption, in 2022, Russia invaded your homeland, seeking to seize it for itself. You stood bravely against them, becoming an international icon for your steadfast resoluteness in defence of your homeland and people. You stayed in Kyiv as enemy forces sought your death. You led the military at Ukraine’s hour of greatest need. You appealed to the international community for aid, being incredibly successful in doing so, receiving military assistance to fight the aggressors while isolating Russia from the international community. It is a fight you are just in, and it is a fight that you shall win.


Art by RawSasquatch

Oh fearless Volodymyr Zelenskyy, you must continue to stand against the naked aggression from your enemies. You must seek help of those willing to ensure the territorial and cultural integrity of Ukraine. Can you strengthen your alliances to help protect your people? Will you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Welcome to Ukraine. Right now the destiny of our country is being decided. The destiny of our people, whether Ukrainians will be free, whether they will be able to preserve their democracy."

Defeat: "Tragedies are outpacing life. The tyranny is outpacing the democracy. But you will never devour our spirit. Slava Ukraini!"
