“Since my inauguration in May 2019, I have delivered about 1,000 different addresses around the world. I have selected the 16 speeches in this book because they will help you understand Ukrainians: our aspirations, our principles, and our values,” Zelensky said. “Above all, it will help you hear our message to the world: that we are a free and independent people, and that we will not stop resisting until the last Russian troop has left our territory.”
The book also features a preface by Arkady Ostrovsky, the Economist's editor for Russia and Eastern Europe.
Crown described the book as “Ukraine’s story through the words of its president.”
