Ukraine’s First Lady Olena Zelenska Meets With World Leaders

In Latest York for the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Ukraine’s First Lady Olena Zelenska met with the U.N.’s Secretary-General António Guterres, Prime Minister of Great Britain Liz Truss, France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron and the U.N.’s Population Fund executive director Natalia Kanem.

Zelenska reportedly praised U.N. officials for including the situation in Ukraine on this yr’s report on children in armed conflicts, “as it’ll ensure proper monitoring by the U.N. system of crimes against children committed day by day by the Russian occupiers in our country.” As of last month, greater than one-third of Ukrainian children, about 2.2 million, had been forced to depart their homes, with some having to relocate multiple times, in keeping with humanitarian agencies.

As Zelenska has taken a more public role in denouncing the Russian invasion and championing Ukrainian designers and types in recent months, she has been wearing Ukrainian designs for key public appearances. For Thursday’s visits to the 9/11 Memorial and the Ukrainian Museum, Zelenska gave the impression to be sending a message, wearing a Ukrainian-made belt from the Gunia Project. The brand draws upon its home country’s heritage and is committed to restoring and increasing awareness of the Ukrainian culture globally.

The handwoven belt was inspired by traditional elements of Ukrainian folkloric “Krayka” costume. It carried the message “Brave like Ukraine,” and required six hours of labor by a craftswoman, in keeping with a spokesperson for the Gunia Project.

On the Ukrainain Museum, Zelenska received a tour from its newly installed director Peter Doroshenko, who until recently had held that very same post on the Dallas Contemporary for 11 years. Earlier within the week in Latest York Zelenska hosted a brunch with a few of her female and male counterparts from Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, Malta and other countries, throughout the Summit of First Ladies and First Gentlemen. She was also applauding with the U.N. delegates in Latest York after they gave her husband, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, a standing ovation for his “formula for peace” virtual speech.
