Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was likely accustomed to stirring emotion in others, as a comedian and actor before becoming a politician.

And the past few years have certainly shown that his talent for that hasn't gone away, particularly as Zelenskiy defends his country during Russia's war on it.

So it's not surprising, really, to learn that he's publishing a collection of his speeches.

The Guardian reports that A Message from Ukraine will contain the texts of sixteen speeches Zelenskiy has given since 2019, selected for how they illustrate Ukraine's journey in that time.

It will also include a foreword, from Zelenskiy, discussing what he's learned about himself and about Ukraine since Russia's invasion.

A Message from Ukraine comes out December 6; Zelenskiy's share of the book proceeds will go to the United24 fund, which allocates money to Ukrainian government ministries' most pressing needs.
