MOSCOW, 11 Nov. American comedian and host of The Daily Show Trevor Noah ridiculed a video in which actor Sean Penn presents Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky with one of his Oscars.
"Sean Penn presented an Oscar" ; Zelensky. I don't even know how to digest this information. Is this really happening? Noah asked.
The TV presenter could not understand why Sean Penn brought his award to Ukraine.
“How will the Oscar help Zelensky win? He will use it as a weapon ? Well, then it was necessary to give two pieces with a chain to make nunchucks,” he suggested.
Sean Penn visited Kyiv earlier this week. This is not his first visit to Ukraine since the end of February: he traveled to Kyiv three times and met Zelensky twice.
In early September, the American actor was officially banned from entering Russia.
Russia has been conducting a military special operation on February 24 on Ukraine. Vladimir Putin called its task “the protection of people who have been subjected to bullying and genocide by the Kyiv regime for eight years.” According to the president, the ultimate goal of the operation is the liberation of Donbass and the creation of conditions that guarantee the security of Russia.
