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.
