Who forgot the mic? Ukraine’s Zelensky left without microphone at Munich Security Conference (VIDEO)
Zelensky’s speech took place in a small room outside the main conference hall. When the Ukrainian president approached the podium, he was surprised to find that there was no microphone. “Can I have microphone?” he asked in English. “I can without,” he said, causing the audience to laugh.
It turned out that there was no microphone, not because the organizers weren’t interested in what Zelensky had to say, or thought he wouldn’t need one due to his background as a comedian and actor. It was merely an oversight, which is always possible at big events like this.
“I thought they miked you up,” the moderator said, explaining the slip-up, and gave Zelensky his own handheld mic. The president was then given a lapel mic. “Two is much,” he said, again drawing a laugh from the audience.
Once that was all sorted out, Zelensky delivered his speech, switching from English back to Ukrainian.Also on rt.com It’s the wrong guy! Two Ukrainian channels air oligarch Poroshenko’s NYE address instead of president Zelensky’s
