Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife pose for the fashion magazine “Vogue” in the middle of the Ukraine war. There is no mere applause for action.
in short needed
- The Zelensky couple met with “Vogue” during the Ukraine war.
- Now pictures of an interview and a photoshoot have surfaced.
- Staging doesn’t go down equally well with everyone.
The photo of the Ukrainian presidential couple in “Vogue” was taken by star photographer Ani Leibovitz. Among other things, Olena Selenska poses in a designer outfit next to a soldier in front of an airplane destroyed in the Ukraine war. In another picture, the Ukrainian First Lady can be seen snuggling up with her husband in a perfectly styled outfit.
Volodymyr Zelensky raged in the magazine about his wife’s handling of the Ukraine war. “I think she plays a very important role. For Ukraine, for our families and for our women,” Zelenskij says, “my wife is a role model for the women and children who are still in Ukraine. Huh.”
Do you think it’s worth doing a photo shoot in the middle of a war?
According to the 44-year-old politician, she has a strong personality and is probably stronger than she thinks. “This war—well, any war probably brings out qualities you never expected.”
Criticism of the shootings during the Ukraine war
According to Vogue, the Selenskys have not seen their two children for security reasons since the start of the Ukraine war. The First Lady says: “It’s very hard for him in that regard. He suffers and then my children suffer because they can’t see each other.
Photos and interviews, which initially appeared only online, caused a stir on social networks. While some praise the magazine for supporting Ukraine, others find the staging inappropriate.
For example, one Twitter user writes: “Huge losses among Ukrainian soldiers every day. But Mr and Mrs Zelensky is doing a photo shoot with Vogue. I expect this issue to be a slow seller.” Another critic criticizes: “Families have lost their belongings and Vogue glamorizes the war – unbelievable.”
