First lady of Ukraine sends message to American women
First lady of Ukraine sends message to the world, especially to American women.
Ukrainian first lady Olena Zelenska has asked America, especially American women to step up and help Ukrainian women who are in difficult times as Russian Ukraine war intensifies.
She sent her message through American News outlet, ABC news.
Zelenska said world leaders should do everything possible to stop the war. “I guess my message is very similar to the one the whole world delivers, only two simple words; stop war” she wrote.
She also plead with American women to accept Ukrainian woman children when they knock on their doors.
“I appeal to you, women in America, and ask to support Ukrainian women and children who escape from war and are looking for a shelter in your country” she said
“Today, our country and our civilians pay for very high price for the silence and hesitation in regards of this issue. Yesterday, it was innocent women and children in the maternity hospital in Mariupol. We have lost more than 71 children because of the Russian war. It is genocide of the Ukrainian people. Moreover, millions of people are suffering in Mariupol, Kharkiv, Irpin, Sumy and other cities. They don’t have water food and medicine. Russian soldiers are blocking humanitarian aid. We need to stop it. By saying we, I mean the whole world” she said.
“I appeal to you, women in America, and ask to support Ukrainian women and children escaped from war and are looking for a shelter in your country. These days every act of kindness and humanism is vital while we are bravely fighting for freedom of Ukraine, for Europe for the whole world”
She also said she’s now scared of the life of her husband, President Zelensky.
“As a woman in Ukraine now I fear for my husband. Every morning before I call him, I pray everything goes well. I also know how strong and enduring he is. He is able to withstand anything, especially when he defends people and things that he loves”
