Klopotenko, who did not support Zelenskyy in 2019, explains why he changed his mind and what transformations he noticed in the first lady

Klopotenko spoke out about the Zelenskyy couple

Famous Ukrainian restaurateur and cooking show host Yevhen Klopotenko was skeptical of Volodymyr Zelenskyy 's presidential candidacy in 2019, but his position has changed somewhat. He believes that during a full-scale war, one should not criticize the activities of the country's leadership, leaving these discussions until the day of victory over Russia.

The chef, who also spoke with the wife of the Ukrainian leader, Olena Zelenska, admitted that he had noticed a transformation in her character since Russia launched a full-scale war against Ukraine. Klopotenko shared his thoughts in an interview with the Pryamaya Chervona TV channel.

The restaurateur admitted that he doesn't talk to the first lady every day, but he always feels her support when needed.

"Yes, she has changed. It seems to me that she has become super strong, and better. Well, she was never bad. It's like I'm complimenting someone in politics. I'm saying that as a person. I don't know her in other things, we rarely talk, but I've always liked her. She supports all the ideas that I say. What else do I need?" the chef said.

He doesn't deny that in 2019 he criticized the president's team for their inexperience in politics. Now, Klopotenko is not ready to make such loud statements, as he does not consider it appropriate to start discussions within the country that is confronting a dangerous enemy.

"If I say that I support Zelenskyy and believe in him, what will it do? We are at war. When the day of victory comes, we will sit down and analyze who did what right and who did what wrong. Now we need maximum support from the president. If we are divided in our opinions, we will never win," the restaurateur emphasized.

He added that he will definitely support the president until the day of victory, and only then he will be able to afford to publicly discuss the actions of the state leadership.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that Yevhen Klopotenko, together with Olena Zelenska, was developing a new school menu, but before the first lady tasted it, two sanitary and epidemiologists took the dishes for examination. In addition to them, four security officers were also present.
