Hilarious: Trying to Pose as a Nationalist, Zelensky Accidentally Promotes Russian-Style Medieval Shirt

Kind of defeats the narrative of Russian-Ukrainian differences if even the guy they elected president can't tell them apart

Posing as a Ukrainian nationalist is hard (especially if you’re a Russian-speaking Jew from Novorossia)

The vyshyvanka is a traditional embroidered shirt or tunic warn in all of the Russias. It is traditional to Belarus, Greater Russia, and Ukraine but only in Ukraine did this become a national garment that even has its own holiday. In Russia, only ultraconservative weirdoes wear this. This is literally medieval cosplay kind of clothing.

It probably became popular first in Western Ukraine around the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth century, and it had a lot to do with the local Ukrainian nationalists LARPing as Cossacks. In the post-Soviet days, this fetish has infected the rest of Ukraine because the government of Ukraine likes promoting the culture of West Ukrainian nationalists…

But something went wrong:

The president, Zelensky wore a Russian-style kosovorotka. And the kosovorotka is well, Greater Russian…

Meanwhile in the trenches of Donbas:
