President Volodymyr Zelensky was named Time magazine’s person of the year 2022 on Wednesday, December 7.

This is the first time the Ukraine leader has held this title as a result of his role in the country’s invasion, which TIME magazine dubbed “the spirit of Ukraine.

According to Time’s website, Zelensky lived apart from his wife and their two children for the majority of this year.

“For most of this year, Zelensky lived apart from his wife and their two children. The main reason is security; his presence would put them at greater risk. But he also feels it would be wrong to resume their domestic habits while so many Ukrainian families remain separated by the war. Millions of refugees from Ukraine are living abroad, mostly women and children, while men of fighting age are prohibited from leaving the country without special permission, which is not granted readily under the terms of martial law, the magazine notes.

Time also states that “Zelensky sees his family much more often now than in the first weeks of the war. During a recent visit, his 9-year-old son, Kyrylo, surprised his father with his expertise in military matters. Zelensky seemed proud of the boy’s new interests.”

It’s also noted that “The call from the President’s office came on a Saturday evening: Be ready to go the next day, an aide said, and pack a toothbrush. There were no details about the destination or how we would get there, but it wasn’t difficult to guess. Only two days earlier, on the 260th day of the invasion of Ukraine, the Russians had retreated from the city of Kherson. It was the only regional capital they had managed to seize since the start of the all-out war in February, and the Kremlin had promised it would forever be a part of Russia. Now Kherson was free, and Volodymyr Zelensky wanted to get there as soon as possible.”

To sum it up, the mag wrote: “TIME’s 2022 Person of the Year: Volodymyr Zelensky and the spirit of Ukraine”
