Volodymyr Zelenskiy vows never to allow Ukrainians cry anymore after he was sworn into office as  the new Ukraine president on Monday

Zelenskiy arrived at his inauguration Monday after walking through Kiev’s Mariinsky Park, where cheering supporters thronged barricades marking his path to the parliament building.

Walking with a camera crew and a small security detail, he leaned over the railing at one point to take a selfie with a young fan, using the crowd as a backdrop.

Addressing the people of Ukraine after the swearing in, Zelenskiy finished his inaugural speech by saying, “All my life I tried to do all I could so that Ukrainians laughed. That was my mission. Now I will do all I can so that Ukrainians at least do not cry any more.”

Meanwhile the comedian earlier noted that one of his first actions will be to dissolve parliament. Fulfilling a campaign promise, as Zelenskiy announced a snap election to choose new lawmakers.

Zelenskiy in his inaugural speech, while quoting Ronald Reagan — another actor-turned-president — from his 1981 inaugural address, said;

“Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem,”

As Zelenskiy dismissed the Supreme Rada, he said new national elections will be held in two months — and that politicians should use that time to prove their worth. He called on legislators to adopt anti-corruption laws, including measures that would strip legislators of their immunity from prosecution and increase transparency.

“Glory to Ukraine!” Zelenskiy, 41, said after announcing he will dismiss parliament’s current body.

Zelenskiy however urged ministers and government officials to resign if they aren’t willing to work for change. And he urged cabinet leaders and others not to put his portrait on their office walls.
