The day before, the wife of the Ukrainian president, Olena Zelenska, arrived in Great Britain, where the coronation of Charles III will take place on May 6. On the same day, the first lady visited Downing Street at the invitation of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata Murthy.
As you know, in the UK next week will also start an important event for Ukraine - Eurovision 2023, so during her visit, Olena Zelenska thanked her for the organization of the contest on behalf of Ukraine. OBOZREVATEL decided to show and tell what the first lady managed to do for the day (to see the photo, scroll to the end of the page).
"We teach your military, but in fact, it is you who teach us. We are learning from Ukraine and Ukrainians how to be so strong and resilient," said the British Prime Minister's wife when she met the Ukrainian.
She wore mustard-colored pants and a blue shirt, so the look resembled the Ukrainian flag. Elena Zelenskaya came to Downing Street in a dark blue suit.
Together with friends of Ukraine, the wife of the head of an independent state visited the British Library. Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the British Library has organized numerous events dedicated to Ukrainian culture and literature.
Together with the Director General of the institution, Sir Roly Keating, Elena Zelenskaya opened the Ukrainian bookshelf. Afterward, the first ladies of the two countries talked to Ukrainian children and read works by writer Vladimir Nikitenko for them.
Olena Zelenskaya also discussed the Ukraine Recovery Conference, which will be held in June in London, and made it clear that Ukrainians are waiting for concrete results and solutions. Also, the first lady of Ukraine invited Rishi Sunak's wife to the third summit of first ladies and gentlemen, which will be held September 6 in Kyiv and is devoted to the theme of mental health.
Recall that the coronation of the British ruler will begin on May 6. The ceremony will be traditionally held in Westminster Abbey in London. The coronation celebrations will last for three days, so the British will get an extra day off on Monday, May 8. All the details are in our material.
