Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is proud of his wife Olena Zelenska’s handling of the Russian war of aggression. “I believe that she plays a very important role for Ukraine, for our families and for our women,” Zelenskyy told Vogue.

His wife is a role model for women and children who are still in Ukraine. “First of all, she has a strong personality. And she’s probably stronger than she thought. And this war – well, any war probably brings out qualities you never expected.”

For security reasons, according to Vogue, Selenskyj has not seen his two children since the beginning of the war. “He has it much harder in that regard. he suffers And then my children suffer because they can’t see each other,” Selenska said of the breakup.

Selenska herself did not originally seek publicity. “I like staying in the background – that suited me,” said the 44-year-old. It was difficult for her to step into the limelight. Selenska recently asked the United States for more weapons in a speech at the Capitol in Washington.
