  • The presidents of France and Ukraine met in Kyiv.

  • An awkward photo of the two leaders from the visit has become a meme.

  • Zelenskyy didn't seem to reciprocate the hug.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy appeared less than enthusiastic when the French president swooped in for a hug.

It looks like that in a photo of the two leaders, which has become an internet meme.

The photographer who took the picture in Kyiv said that he heard something in Zelenskyy's ear. The two had just finished a news conference together.

Zelensky looks at us. Marin commented on the photo, saying that he did not know. There is a difference in the way they look.
