Olena Zelenska, the wife of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says the beleaguered nation sees Israel as a source of inspiration for resilience.

“It is not an exaggeration to say that Israel’s past experience inspires the citizens of Ukraine,” Zelenska tells Channel 12 news in an interview.

“We see the Israelis’ strength and power of resilience in the difficult situation Israel has been in for many years. Your resilience serves as an example for us,” she says.

Speaking on Israeli assistance to Ukraine, which has been limited to humanitarian aid only, Zelenska says her country appreciates all the help it can get.

“As you know, Ukraine’s health system is overloaded. That’s why I’m asking for help for Ukraine in any way possible,” she tells the network.
