Ukraine's First Lady Olena Zelenska on Wednesday took to social media to wish her husband, President Volodomyr Zelenskyy and urged him to smile more even as the country continues to fight against the Russian invasion.
Ukraine President Volodomyr Zelenskyy turns 45 today and Olena took this opportunity to share a picture of the couple along with a message for her husband.
"I am often asked about how you have changed this year. And I always answer: 'He haven't changed. He is the same. The same guy I have met when we were seventeen'.
"But actually, something has changed: you smile much less now. For example, like on this photo. I wish you to have more reasons for smiling. And you know what it takes, we all do.
"You are stubborn enough. But the main thing is to have enough health. So please, be healthy! I want to smile near you forever. Give me this opportunity!" Olena wrote on the post.
