One of the world’s most distinguished international publishers, Penguin Random House, has published a new book with a collection of Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s 16 speeches — many of which have been made since the beginning of the full-scale war. Part of the proceeds from the book’s sales will go towards rebuilding Ukraine, via the UNITED24 fundraising platform.
A Message from Ukraine is out now around the world in hardcover, audiobook and ebook formats. The book includes 16 speeches made between 2019 and now. Each of them will help readers better understand Ukraine and Ukrainians, and their aspirations, principles, and values.
Rowan Borchers, Editorial Director at Hutchinson Heinemann, said:
“Over the last nine months, President Zelenskyy’s speeches have become a rallying cry for everyone who cares about the future of democracy. It is the honour of a lifetime to help him share his message with the world.”
Penguin was founded in 1935 by Allen Lane. Today, Penguin Random House is the world’s leading publishing house, the publisher of books written by more than 50 Nobel Prize laureates, and over 100 Pulitzer Prize winners.
