In an interview, the first lady of Ukraine emphasized that Ukrainians need help in every sense.
First Lady of Ukraine Elena Zelenskaya noted that she rarely sees her husband and how much separation from their father, President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky, their children endure. The first lady spoke about this in an interview with the German channel ZDF, which was posted on the YouTube channel of the Office of the President of Ukraine.
According to the president’s wife, since February 24, 2022, he has literally lived at work. Therefore, they and their children very rarely see him, and if this happens, it is mainly during work meetings and official exits.
However, Zelenskaya understands perfectly well why now not only their family, but also thousands of other families have to be separated, why they need to endure, “because we know what we are fighting for.” The children, 19-year-old Alexandra and 10-year-old Kirill, also realize this.
“This war changes everything, divides families. We can’t all live together now. Yes, we can see each other sometimes, but it can’t be all the time. The children miss him, of course… I just want more time to be together “, shared the wife of the Ukrainian guarantor.
Elena Zelenskaya noted that for her, the end of the war will symbolize, in particular, the fact that thousands of families from all over the country will finally be reunited, just like her family.
“Ukrainians are psychologically exhausted, but we have no other choice but to hold on and wait for reunification. Why do they still want victory, to end the war? To meet again, so that we can be a family together. This is especially felt now, before the Christmas holidays, when tradition, the whole family must gather at one table, and this tradition is impossible now for many,” commented the first lady.
And she added that Ukrainians are incredibly grateful that our cities and villages are protected by air defense, in particular thanks to Germany. However, she noted that given the intensity of shelling, which is not decreasing, it is scary to imagine what will happen when these funds run out.
“We see that sanctions are working, but they are working slowly. We see that one of the world leaders continues to shake hands with the aggressor. And this cannot but frighten… We need help in every sense. We need our allies to and continue to put pressure on the enemy. We need military assistance so that our defenders can defend themselves,” Zelenskaya emphasized.
