Survive in times of war. In a given interview at CNNUkraine’s First Lady, Olena Zelenska, was extensively questioned about her state of mind, while Russia’s invasion of his country begins its 49th day on Wednesday† During this interview, Volodymyr Zelensky’s wife praised the courage and resilience of the Ukrainian people.

“Ukrainians did not believe in war, we believed in civilized dialogue. […] We didn’t become “frightened mob” as the enemy had hoped. No. We have become an organized community. Immediately the political and other controversies that exist in all societies disappeared. Everyone gathered to protect their home. I see examples every day and never tire of writing about them. Yes, Ukrainians are great,” she says.

According to Olena Zelenska, after the discovery of several hundred bodies of Ukrainians since the departure of the army from MoscowRussian propaganda is no longer effective in the eyes of the international community.

“Now everyone can see war crimes, for example, those committed by the Russians in Boutchawhere the bodies of civilians with their hands tied simply lay in the street. […] But the problem is that the Russians don’t want to see what the whole world sees, [pour] feel more comfortable. After all, it’s easier to say, “It’s all wrong” and go have your coffee. […] Don’t get used to our pain,” she says.

“We only communicate by phone”

The interview with CNN touches on a more personal side. According to Olena Zelenska, she and her husband have been separated since the beginning of the conflict and have not been able to see each other again. “Volodymyr and his team actually live in the president’s office. So for over a month we’ve only communicated by phone,” she describes, dismissing potential threats against her person out of control.

“If you look closely, it becomes clear that every Ukrainian is a target for the Russians: every woman, every child.”

After recalling that her children were with her at the time, the Ukrainian First Lady also explained how she had spoken to them about the conflict. “Nothing in particular needed to be explained. We just talk about everything that happens,” she concludes.
