Beniuk explained why it is important to support Zelenskyi during the war

Bohdan Beniuk spoke about Volodymyr Zelenskyi

Famous Ukrainian actor Bohdan Beniuk openly admitted that he did not vote for Volodymyr Zelenskyi in the 2019 presidential election. The theater and film star reveals that he had, and allegedly still has, 'certain concerns' about the current leader of the state.

However, the People's Artist of Ukraine has no intention to criticize the president. He encourages other citizens to support Zelenskyi. Beniuk shared his thoughts in an exclusive interview with OBOZ.UA.

The actor believes that in the context of a full-scale terrorist war, it is crucial to be united and support the guarantor, setting aside any past grievances and misunderstandings.

"I did not vote for him [Volodymyr Zelenskyi]. I had and still have certain concerns about him. The way he has been governing the state in waves—there have been moments of respect and disrespect. The circle of people around him does not inspire me at all. But for now, I view him as a president who needs to be supported because there is a war going on," Beniuk commented.

Furthermore, as inferred from the actor's statements, he is opposed to the presidential elections in 2024.

"We must endeavor to set aside all those negatives, unite, and avoid taking steps that could lead us to premature elections or the re-election of the president and the Verkhovna Rada," Beniuk emphasized.
