President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has become the most influential person in 2022 according to a poll of readers of the Time American magazine.

According to the magazine, more than 3.3 million readers (5% of the votes) voted for the Ukrainian leader.

"When russian troops launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February, Zelensky, a comedian who had no political experience before being elected president of Ukraine in 2019, stepped onto the world stage and rallied leaders to support Ukraine", - the magazine writes.

Second place, according to the poll, was taken by CEO of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk (3.5% of the votes). It is noted that this year, the American billionaire continued to get into the headlines, in particular, against the backdrop of the purchase of Twitter for $44 billion.

Third place was given by the magazine's readers to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (3.4%), despite the fact that at the beginning of the year, he faced backlash and was fined by the police for holding a party during the lockdown in June 2020.

Let us recall that last year, according to Time, American businessman, founder of SpaceX and Tesla Elon Musk became the person of 2021.

As previously reported, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky submitted decrees to the Rada on the extension of martial law and mobilization.
