Olena Zelenska: You count the pennies, we count the victims

Olena Zelenska says that if support for Ukraine were strong, the crisis would be shorter.

In an interview recorded in Kiev, she also says it is important to emphasize human losses.

In an interview to be broadcast on Sunday 4 September, Zelenska was also asked what message she had for Britons who are facing rising energy bills in part due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the impact it has had on global gas and oil. .

"I understand that the situation is very difficult. But let me remind you that during the Covid-19 epidemic, which is still with us, there were price increases and Ukraine was also affected. Prices are also rising in Ukraine. But besides that, our people are also being killed. So when you count the pennies in your bank account or in your pocket, we do the same, but we count our victims," ??she said.

Olena Zelenska also spoke about all those who say about her husband: He went from a TV actor to a war leader.

The first lady, who comes from the same city as her husband and has known him since university, said she was offended by the comments.

"He is the man I have always known. He wouldn't do anything else differently," she said.
