The press release issued by the President of Ukraine on 29 June 2022.
The First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska gave an interview to CNN, one of the world’s leading broadcasters. The wife of the President of Ukraine, in particular, noted that the Russian missile attack on the shopping mall in Kremenchuk is terrorism.
She also described how the country feels in the fifth month of resistance to the Russian invasion.
“In the first weeks of the war, all of us – and me too, fur sure – felt like sprinters. It was necessary to repel all attacks, all challenges as quickly as possible. Emotions, forces and adrenaline were on the verge. Now, in the fifth month of the war, we are all long-distance runners. It is necessary to distribute forces and resources correctly to overcome the whole distance and to win. We must have enough strength to win. And we will have enough,” the First Lady is convinced.
Olena Zelenska informed about a large-scale national program of psychological support for Ukrainians, which will help overcome the post-traumatic stress syndrome caused by the war.
“We want our people to survive the war and find the strength to live on. We will not let the war break their morale,” said the President’s wife.
