Take a look at the viral video of Volodymyr Zelenskyy before he became President of Ukraine, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : This Is Zelenskyy Before He Became President Of Ukraine!
People are sharing a video allegedly of Volodymyr Zelenskyy performing on stage, before he became President of Ukraine.
The video has the overlay “The comedian before he became the Ukrainian president“, and showed him ogling the breasts of several women, while he sang.
Truth : This Is Not President Of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy!
Ever since Russia invaded Ukraine, social media and WhatsApp groups have been inundated with fake news and videos involving those two countries.
This is yet another example of pro-Russia and anti-Ukraine fake news that people are intentionally / ignorantly sharing, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : He Is Vasyl Humenyuk, Not Volodymyr Zelenskyy
When I first saw the video, I could immediately see that the man was not Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
Identifying the man though took some effort, but I was finally able to identify him as Vasyl Humenyuk (Facebook page).
Fact #2 : Vasyl Humenyuk Is Like Volodymyr Zelenskyy, But Not Him
Vasyl Humenyuk is a Ukrainian comedian and politician like Volodymyr Zelenskyy. In fact, he ran for the Ukrainian Parliamentary elections under the Zelenskyy’s Servant of the People party, but lost.
He was later appointed to head the Yarmolynets District State Administration by Zelenskyy in February 2020.
Except for the fact that they are white males, they don’t really look alike… but just in case, here’s a comparison of the two man.
Fact #3 : It Was A Satirical Comedy Song
Vasyl Humenyuk is a member of the Vinnytsia team in the comedy show, League of Laughter.
The video was a clip of him singing his signature song, “Maiden’s Eyes” in the 2017 League of Laughter.
The song satirises men’s obsession with breasts, calling them “maiden’s eyes” which are what men should really be looking at.
