Current odds do favor Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy with a payout of $2 on every $17 bet, though the Ukrainian People were coming in at EVEN odds.  Yes, Russian President Vladimir Putin has made the list as well at 11/1 odds for a payment potential of $110 on every $10 bet.

Zelenskyy has ruled over a nation invaded by Russia earlier in the year.  The invasion is estimated to have resulted in tens of thousands of deaths on both sides while leading to Europe's largest refugee crisis since World War II.
