The First Lady noted that now the image of the whole of Ukraine is as follows: a wounded country strives to live on and fights for it.
We save and provide the most necessary for those who remained in Ukraine. Incubators for perinatal centers… Today in Ukraine there are several dozens of children with limb amputations who need prosthetics and long-term rehabilitation. This is the task I am now starting to work on. I will contact the leading clinics in the world. And our completely new project – the National Program for Mental Health and Psychosocial Support, – added the wife of the President.
Olena Zelenska stressed that it is important now not to get used to war. We should talk about it, because otherwise Putin will psychologically win.
From all of Ukraine, please don't get used to the fact that bombs are falling on children somewhere in Europe. Talk about it. For once we all get used to it, Putin will win a psychological victory. Secondly, check the information. The information war also continues now. And if it begins to seem to you that there may be some justification for an attack on another country, that aggressive actions may have some meaning, then this means that you are in the field of action of the Russian media, – said the first lady.
< p>The president's wife says that all members of the public should influence their governments, urging them to tighten sanctions against Russia. Thus, we will bring Ukraine closer to victory.
The sooner she feels them, the fewer people will die in Ukraine. And representatives of big business, people with financial authority in the world, can influence the situation by stopping cooperation with Russian companies. – Zelenskaya is convinced. dalshe-i-boretsja-za-eto-zelenskaja-vystupila-na-forume-v-davose-b7feb12.jpg” alt=”A wounded country strives to live on and fights for it: Zelenskaya spoke at the forum in Davos” />
