NEW YORK, December 7, 2022 — Today, TIME named Volodymyr Zelensky and the Spirit of Ukraine as the 2022 Person of the Year.

The cover story is by TIME’s Simon Shuster. He spent nine months reporting on the invasion, during which Zelensky and his team granted him unparalleled access to work inside the presidential compound.

In his letter to readers, TIME Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal writes, “This year’s choice was the most clear-cut in memory. Whether the battle for Ukraine fills one with hope or fear, the world marched to Volodymyr Zelensky’s beat in 2022. In the weeks after Russian bombs began falling on February 24, his decision not to flee Kyiv but to stay and rally support was fateful. After his first 40-second Instagram post on February 25, Ukraine’s president was everywhere. His information offensive shifted the geo­political weather system, setting off a wave of action that swept the globe.”

Felsenthal continues, “The impact of this story on 2022 is the essence of what Person of the Year was designed to capture, the idea that fateful events on the global stage are shaped—for better and worse—by the talents, priorities, fears, and quirks of individual human beings… For proving that courage can be as contagious as fear, stirring people and nations to come together in defense of freedom, and reminding the world of the fragility of democracy-and of peace, Volodymyr Zelensky and the spirit of Ukraine are TIME’s 2022 Person of the Year.”


• TIME also named the 2022 Athlete, Entertainer, Icon, Heroes, Innovator, and Breakthrough Artist of the Year:

The “December 26, 2022 - January 9, 2023, Person of the Year Issue” of TIME goes on sale on Friday, December 16, 2022.

On December 8, TIME will host a reception featuring meaningful conversations with leaders whose impact defined 2022 at the Plaza Hotel in New York City.
