In a Global Mega Exclusive, Asia’s largest News Network, the Republic Media Network interviewed the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Thursday. Republic’s Editor-in-Chief and Founder Mr. Arnab Goswami’s no-holds barred interview with the world’s biggest newsmaker President Zelenskyy lasted for 60 minutes, and was telecast live across broadcast and digital platforms. The interview has gone on to set global headlines amidst the ongoing Ukraine-Russia war.
Arnab Goswami’s interview with President Zelenskyy has emerged as the most comprehensive interview since the Bucha massacre, which shook the conscience of the entire global community.
The interview with Republic Media Network has become a turning point in the Russia-Ukraine war, given the unprecedented outreach by President Zelenskyy towards talks with Russian President Putin, which in his words should happen “as soon as possible”.
From a dynamic and direct offer for talks with the Russian President, to repeatedly inviting India to be a security guarantor,, to taking a position on the nuclear threat by Russia, to making unprecedented disclosures on Ukraine’s territory, to laying down the conditions for a compromise, to slamming the half-measures by some Western nations vis-a-vis sanctions and to taking on the UN for its inaction-- it was a interview wherein the Ukrainian President did not mince his words on any topic.
Republic Media Network’s global presence, reportage and access to global newsmakers has once again been established. The Republic Media Network is the first and only Asian news network to speak to the President of the war-torn nation. This interview comes on the back of extensive and unmatched on-ground reportage by Republic Media Network in Ukraine, as well as across the Warzone. Republic Media Network has, via the interview, proven once again that a journalist-led Indian news network has the ability to set the global agenda on the world’s biggest talking points.
The #ArnabZelenskyyInterview created ripples online within moments of the first playout and was soon trending across social media platforms including Twitter and Koo. The Live Stream of the Interview netted record reach across platforms. The scale of digital engagement that the interview received was logged from within India’s borders as well as beyond it.
