Before becoming the president of Ukraine, the country that would be subjected to the terror of Vladimir Putin, Volodymyr Zelensky was an actor, but also an acclaimed commander.
He starred in a satirical comedy series called Servant of the People, among many others.
Netflix has made an important decision regarding its audience in the United States: users of the streaming channel in the States can now watch the series that made President Volodymyr Zelenski famous.
Volodymyr Zelensky became the president of Ukraine, just like in the series that made him famous
In “Servant of the People”, Volodymyr Zelensky played the role of a teacher who was unexpectedly elected President of Ukraine after a video criticizing corruption in this country went viral online.
According to The New York Times, the series, which ran between 2015 and 2019, proved to be successful in both Russia and Ukraine. The series was previously on Netflix, in the USA, and the streaming service recently announced that it intends to bring it back to its program schedule, in the context of current events.
Not surprisingly, subscribers are interested in watching the series that laid a foundation for Volodymyr Zelensky’s presidency. It will be interesting to see if Netflix views see a significant increase in the next period.
Netflix officials also said that the return of the series was due to the conflict in Ukraine, which killed thousands of people, including innocent civilians. Moreover, Europe is currently facing a real refugee crisis as a result of Russian aggression in that country.
It should be noted that Netflix is one of the many companies that have severed ties with Russia in recent weeks. The streaming platform is no longer available there. At the same time, it seems that the giant has suspended the production and acquisition of content in Russia.
