Volodymyr Zelenskyy, 44, of Ukraine is being hailed as a hero amid the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. But Madison Cawthorn, 26, of North Carolina, United States seems to view the Ukrainian president differently.
“Remember that Zelenskyy is a thug,” the North Carolina congressman says in a video obtained by WRAL. “Remember that the Ukrainian government is incredibly corrupt and is incredibly evil and has been pushing woke ideologies.”
The video was taken more than a week after Vladimir Putin, 69, of Russia announced on February 24, 2022 that Russia was initiating a special military operation in Donbas, Ukraine. Apparently, Cawthorn is a fan of neither Zelenskyy nor Putin.
On March 10, 2022, Cawthorn took to Twitter to accuse Zelenskyy of pushing misinformation on America. The American politician also condemned Putin’s actions.
On February 26, 2022, Zelenskyy refused the assistance offered by the governments of the United States and Turkey that were urging him to evacuate to a safer location amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine. On March 8, 2022, he took to Instagram to reveal that he was in Kyiv and not hiding.
In 2000, Zelenskyy graduated from the Kryvyi Rih Institute of Economics in Kryvyi Rih, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ukraine with a law degree. On May 20, 2019, he assumed office as the president of Ukraine.
Zelenskyy is married to Olena Zelenska. They have two children together.
Putin earned a black belt in karate after attaining the rank of master of sambo in 1973 and master of judo in 1975. Also in 1975, he earned his law degree from Leningrad State University in Leningrad, Russia now Saint Petersburg University at St. Petersburg, respectively.
On July 28, 1983, Putin and Lyudmila Aleksandrovna got married. On May 7, 2012, he assumed office as the president of Russia, a position he previously held.
On June 6, 2013, Putin and Aleksandrovna publicly announced the termination of their marriage based on a mutual decision. They have two children together.
Born in Asheville, North Carolina to Roger Cawthorn and Priscilla Cawthorn, Madison was homeschooled in Henderson, North Carolina for elementary school and middle school. Madison was married to Cristina Bayardelle from 2020 to 2021.
In 2014, then North Carolina congressman Mark Meadows nominated Madison to the U.S. Naval Academy but his application was rejected. That year, after the rejection, injuries from a car accident left Madison partially paralyzed.
In 2016, Madison entered Patrick Henry College in Purcelville, Virginia, USA to study political science but dropped out after earning mostly D grades. On January 3, 2021, he assumed office as the North Carolina congressman.
