Not to name names (Putin), but it's become fashionable in certain authoritarian circles (Putin) to claim that Ukraine is not a "real" country (Putin).

As many DiD fans know, Ukraine has been responsible in recent years for some of the most impressive mainstream bondage scenes to be found anywhere. But did you know that Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy himself features prominently in one of those scenes? Well, you do now! Many thanks to our friend blowthelights for sending along this 2015 scene from the variety show Вечерний Киев (aka Vecherniy Kiev), which Zelenskyy co-produced and co-hosted.
ScreenTies stands with the people of Ukraine and is proud to feature almost an hour of their best DiD work on our site. Most of those scenes are included here, but subscribers can find every last one by entering "Ukraine" in the search bar and clicking on the menu item that appears.
