Volodymyr Zelensky's election campaign from 2019 as a response to the demands of Ukrainian society
Shvets, Oleksii ; Mlejnek, Josef (advisor) ; Hájek, Lukáš (referee)
This thesis examines the election campaign of Volodymyr Zelensky, specifically the question of whether Volodymyr Zelensky's brand was created during the election campaign before the presidential election in Ukraine in 2019. If such a brand was created, then whether Volodymyr Zelensky's success in the elections was the result of marketing techniques related to branding only, or whether candidate Zelensky's successful brand was not only the result of competent application of marketing techniques, but also the result of reflection of the public's requests on key socio-political issues. In the theoretical chapter we study the theory of branding in politics and highlight the main characteristics that a modern political brand should possess. In the second chapter, we present the key socio-political issues that worried the public in the period leading up to the elections and directly influenced the campaign. In the next chapter we will present several key factors and events that cannot be categorized as problematic phenomena, but which will also help to understand the reasons for Zelensky's electoral victory. In the next chapter we will examine Volodymyr Zelensky's election campaign and answer the question if Zelensky's political brand was created. In the last chapter we will compare the campaign rhetoric...

Its main goal is to provide a comprehensive analysis of these cases to demonstrate how regulation of campaign finance works there, which is considerably different from systems found not only in the Czech Republic but also in Europe.

The author divides the work into four parts. In the first part, the reader is introduced to the basic institutes and concepts that relate to the American campaign finance law and then compares them with their Czech counterparts in order to facilitate the understanding of the following three parts, which already cover the concrete cases.

Attention is paid to the form and frequency of negative advertisement as it is an integral part of the pre-election period and, in the examined elections, was employed often in the campaign's strategy. In the theoretical section, negative advertising is placed into the wider scope of current trends in political communication and is tied in with political marketing tools.
