Ukraine’s Zelenskiy sets national record for longest press marathon

It has been a long day for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy as he held an unusual hours-long press marathon.

After eight hours of a televised news conference Zelenskiy earned a title of a record breaker for the longest news conference held by the country’s president.

Representative of Ukraine’s national register of records, Vitaliy Zorin, presented Zelenskiy with an award and said Zelenskiy broke the previous record by 45 minutes.

In 2017, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko held a news conference which lasted for seven hours and 21 minutes.

The press marathon started at 10 a.m. local time  and was expected to last for up to 10 hours.
