The Ukrainian President is now represented by name in the animal kingdom: To honor “his courage and bravery”, researchers in Poland are dedicating a find from the Jurassic geological era to him.

Polish researchers have named a crinoid fossil after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The petrified animal was discovered in Ethiopia and is almost completely preserved, reports the team led by researcher Mariusz Salamon from the University of Katowice (German: Kattowitz).
