Olena Zelenska uses her social media profile to shed light on what is happening in Ukraine.

When Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky received an offer to leave the country at the beginning of the Russian invasion, his answer was straightforward: “I need ammunition, not transport.” He decided to stay, but he did not stay alone – his wife stayed too.

The couple stayed with their 17-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son in the country together.

As the president went on to say that his family had become Russia’s next target after him, attention turned to the first lady, whose position remains top secret for security reasons.
