While Ukraine goes through one of the most challenging times in history, Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky holds his ground and stays strong throughout the tribulations.

Millions upon millions of families have fled Ukraine to be safe in the neighboring countries – but Volodymyr Zelensky & his wife Olena stay behind, along with many Ukrainians who are willing to defend their land.

Today’s post is about the pure love between Volodymyr Zelensky & Olena Zelenska. Both of them hail from a small town in central Ukraine – Kryvyi Rih. They went to the same school but hardly knew each other.

Volodymyr was interested in Olena but didn’t share his feelings until he was ready. According to The Daily Mail, Volodymyr spoke about feeling genuine love for Olena on their last day of school:

“It was only on our last day of school that it hit me.”

After school, both of them went to different universities. In 1995, Volodymyr approached Olena on the street and asked if he could borrow a film she had with her – it was a movie he had seen multiple times, he just wanted to find a way to make conversation and get Olena’s number.

They began dating and got married in 2003 – being truly in love with one another. The couple had two beautiful children together – Aleksandra Zelenskaya & Kiril Zelenskiy. In 2019, Volodymyr Zelensky became the President of Ukraine, while his wife Olena became the First Lady. The incredible couple’s marriage has spanned for 18 years.

Olena, sharing a beautiful post on Instagram, wrote about her husband:

“You know, I’m sure you’re looking at me in this picture. Because you always look at me like that.”

“I wish every woman had such looks. Only those who truly love look like that. I always feel your love. As long as you look like that, I’m not afraid of anything.”

“We still have things ahead of us. So take care of yourself. We have to realise everything we dream of together. Happy birthday, my love! I promise to look back at you. Just like that. Always!”

When crisis took over Ukraine, Olena posted brave and inspirational words on Instagram:

“I will not have panic and tears. I will be calm and confident. My children are looking at me. I will be next to them. And next to my husband. And with you.”

While we hope every day for things to settle in Ukraine, it’s heartwarming and endearing to see the leader and First Lady of Ukraine being brave people.
