First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska arrived in Denmark together with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. There she met with Crown Princess Mary. Together, they visited Denmark's Haderslev Cathedral, where a service was held in memory of six-year-old Sofia from Chernihiv, who was killed by a Russian missile fired at the city centre on 19 August.
For this visit, the First Lady chose a special brooch called "Cockerel" by the world-famous Ukrainian brand GUNIA Project. Pictures from Denmark, where you can see the image of the Ukrainian president's wife, appeared on Zelenska's Telegram channel.
"Hadserslev Cathedral is only 200 years younger than St Sophia of Kyiv and is one of the oldest and most famous cathedrals in Denmark. Today, there is a special service dedicated to Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. And alongside Ukrainian IDPs is Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, known for her charitable projects and social activities. I am grateful to her and the whole of Denmark for this gesture, the opportunity to be here and for their daily support and assistance to Ukraine and Ukrainians," Zelenska wrote under the photo.
For the official visit, the first lady chose an elegant milk suit consisting of straight trousers and a fitted jacket. The outfit was designed by Elena Bettiar and Yulia Bogdan of the A.M.G. brand. Brown suede pumps complemented the suit.
The highlight of the look is, of course, the gold brooch. It is made in the shape of a cockerel jug. Exactly the same ceramic piece was found on a kitchen shelf in a house completely destroyed by the occupiers in the village of Borodianka, Kyiv region. Although only a wall remained of the once entire building, the rooster-shaped jug continued to stand on the shelf, making it a true symbol of the indomitable strength and resilience of the entire Ukrainian people.
On the GUNIA Project website, you can buy this brooch for 4700 hryvnias in a small size and 6400 hryvnias in a large size.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL wrote that Olena Zelenska also wore a special brooch made by Kharkiv jeweller Stanislav Drokin and named "Nezabudka". The peculiarity of the jewellery is that it was made from a fragment of an enemy Russian missile.
