Even though Russia and Ukraine are at war, Ukrainian President Zelensky has still found the time to meet with Hollywood celebrities and corrupt politicians.
With the war raging on, Zelenskyy and his wife, Olena Zelenska have now even managed to take time out to do Vogue photoshoot.
While Vogue described the cover as a ‘portrait of bravery’, many have blasted Zelensky’s priorities saying the move was insensitive, made a mockery of the war and pandered to Western influence.
The Mail Online reports: Following the publication of the piece, conservative pundits and politicians seized upon the photo shoot as evidence that the United States should not have sent $40 billion in aid to Ukraine to help its war effort against Russia.
Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert tweeted an image of Zelensky and Zelenska together while saying: ‘While we send Ukraine $60 billion in aid Zelensky is doing photoshoots for Vogue Magazine. These people think we are nothing but a bunch of suckers.’
The article was written by Paris-based journalist Rachel Donadio. On Twitter, Donadio referred to the piece as: ‘One of the most moving and memorable assignments of my career.’
In the piece, Zelensky and his wife are shown together inside of their compound in Mariinsky Palace on the outskirts of Kyiv.
In one photo, Zelenska is pictured beside the downed remains of the world’s largest plane, the Antonov AN-225. The cargo aircraft was sabotaged at an airfield in Kyiv by Russian operatives in February.
Zelenska told Vogue: ‘These have been the most horrible months of my life, and the lives of every Ukrainian.’
