With his huge election victory a year ago, Ukraine's Volodymyr Zelensky vowed to make sweeping changes and usher in a new political era. So, how has he done so far? 🧐 Here's a report card of sorts, with experts weighing in: 

"In general, after his first year in office, Zelenskiy is not emerging as the most effective Ukrainian president. But he is definitely not the disaster that many of his opponents predicted and are trying to portray him as," @getmalyona said. 

"It could have been worse," said @yermolenko_v. "Zelenskiy came to this post totally unprepared and he's facing unprecedented challenges."
