Zelenskys Pose For Glossy Vogue Fashion Cover While Demanding US Send More Money

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife Olena Zelenska have demonstrated exactly where their priorities lie by taking time out from the war effort to pose for a glossy fashion photoshoot for US Vogue.

Zelensky, a former actor, and his wife were photographed together for the glamorous shoot by renowned celebrity photographer Annie Leibowitz – although the article primarily focused on Zelenska, 44. It’s titled: ‘Portrait of Bravery: Ukraine’s First Lady Olena Zelenska.’

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 and counting in aid to the notoriously corrupt Eastern European country to help its war effort against Russia. 

To put the $40 billion figure into context, Joel Berg, CEO of Hunger Free America, has calculated the cost of ending hunger in the US at $25 billion.

Rep. 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.

In the Vogue piece, Zelensky and his wife are picturd together inside of their compound in Mariinsky Palace on the outskirts of Kyiv. 

DailyMail report: 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.’

She went on: ‘Frankly I don’t think anyone is aware of how we have managed emotionally. We’re looking forward to victory. We have no doubt we will prevail. And this is what keeps us going.’

The former comedy writer also said: ‘I like being backstage—it suited me. Moving into the limelight was quite difficult for me.’
