I just appreciate that the man is giving addresses in a tactical shirt.

It's smart PR. I haven't seen a picture of him in a suit and tie since the war started. He's presenting himself as a defender of Ukraine fighting for his country, not just some politician espousing rhetoric.

Remember the beginning of the war? He was kitted up on the streets of Kyiv talking with soldiers while Putin sat in a suit behind a 50 foot long dinner table.

If Machevelli were alive today he'd be singing Zelensky's praises and using him as an example as a highly effective leader.

Dude is also young and in good shape, and has been to the front. Putin can’t even be seen with his generals in front of him.

Well, you see, there's this big table that is keeping him from connecting with other humans. Like, really big table.

It’s not really a “tactical shirt” as much as it is a athletic shirt with a zipper. Anyways, it still sends a similar message. He’s portraying himself as a working class man defending Ukraine like every other Ukrainian.

I mean, dude looks fit and good like that. Meanwhile Putin has become an old bloated bag.

Since sadly PR is a big aspect of keeping support they seem to be making some smart plays on that front.

u/JumpyButterscotch Sep 23 '22

Tactical? Because it has a zipper? Ha!

u/Smegmaliciousss Sep 23 '22

Nobody knows what is hidden in that pocket. Pretty tactical if you ask me.

It's got the little velcro patch holder on the shoulder.
