Zelensky’s Vogue photoshoot raises eyebrows

The Ukrainian leader was blasted online for posing for the magazine with his wife amid the ongoing military conflict.

The latest edition of Vogue magazine – featuring a glossy photoshoot with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky with his wife Elena – has elicited a mixed reaction online.

Tuesday’s article, which primarily focused on the 44-year-old first lady, features a series of shots of the couple taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. In one photo, the two are seen hugging each other while seated at a table. In another, the first lady sits on a grand staircase as the president stands guard behind her. Another shows Elena standing beside the remains of an Antonov AN-225 Mriya surrounded by armed soldiers.

Reactions to the article have been mixed. Some have called the photoshoot “beautiful” and “powerful,” and defended the couple’s decision to pose for Vogue as shining a light on the conflict in Ukraine, keeping it in the forefront of international attention.

Verizon executive Tami Erwin wrote on Twitter that the article was “an outstanding profile” and commended the first lady for doing an incredible job representing her people.

Others, however, used the glossy photos as evidence that the West should not have sent billions in military aid to Ukraine, saying the photo session was in poor taste.

“While we send Ukraine $69 billion in aid Zelensky is doing photoshoots for Vogue Magazine,” Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert tweeted. “These people think we are nothing but a bunch of suckers.”

Congresswoman Mayra Flores (R-Texas) juxtaposed US President Joe Biden’s statements that Ukraine needs more money from America with the reality that the Zelensky family instead “graces us with a photo shoot to be on the cover of Vogue magazine.”

Rebel News Australia bureau chief Avi Yemini said the photoshoot reminded him of when he first saw Zelensky supposedly on the frontline in the early days of the military conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

“I respected Zelensky at the beginning of the war when we were flooded with photos of the Ukrainian President on the frontline in tactical gear. Turned out the photos were faked. An act like the man himself. Now posing for Vogue. All to grift billions from western taxpayers,” Yemini wrote.

Zelensky also recently appeared on the cover of Wired magazine for its September/October issue, albeit in a less glamorous shoot. The Ukrainian leader told the magazine that it was important to be a good communicator in the world of social media.

“The internet is a reality. It is not another world, but rather a modern reality. So if you want people to perceive you as you are, you must use what people use,” he stated.

  1. Zelensky gained fame from pretending to be a president in a reality show and used that to go on to being a pretend President in a reality show.

    • Zelensky is a russian speaker (as a matter of mother tongue) is not great with Ukranian language. When Ulkarain was at the cross roads, he promised unite russian and ukranian speakers and that is why he won the election. After becoming President, we just joined the neonazis and started a genocide of russian speaking population, banned the russian language, started rewriting history projecting russians as subhumans! He amazed close to billion dollars and has become another Oligrach in Ukraine. The deep state was wanting to divide russia into smaller countries for long and Ukraine has become the launching pad. Poor Ukranians have become the cannon fodder when the Russian operation has begun. Zelensky used the peace talkks to gain time and simply executing the Ultimate Scum (US) agenda. It is only a matter of time the conflict will end and Zelensky will be thrown out (or assassinated by the neonazis or deep state agents). Unfortunately, Jabcinda has pushed NZ in the wrong side of the history being an agent of the deep state. However, the NWO is going to fail, and we will enter a multipolar world. We should become the “Switzerland” of the Pacific instead of the Lewinski for the Ultimate Scum.

  2. How low the West can get in propaganda? Zelensky is a neo-nazi, corrupt gay puppet high on drugs and killing ordinary Ukranians setting them as cannon fodder. Selfish deep state has no morals and it needs an adversary to exist for the profits of the Big MIC and legacy media.

  3. Disgusting. Meanwhile citizens suffer as these globalists play war with other peoples lives.

    Why didn’t we see Melania Trump on the cover of Vogue?

    That should tell you all you need to know about Vogue. Who will be their next cover girl? Eddy Izard?
