20.11.2019 11:33Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife, Olena Zelenska, have taken part in an all-Ukrainian forum “Ukraine Is Growing with Me.”
The event was broadcast live on the Facebook page of the Presidential Office.
At the beginning of the forum, the head of state, the first lady and children made a morning exercise, and a question-and-answer session then started.
“These are just banal words: children are the future. Children are smarter than adults. That’s true, so sometimes I feel like a kid with adults,” Zelensky said.
He said he was confident that children now know better than adults the trends of social development, and the country itself should be like young people – “fresh, with something new, something interesting.”
The president also said he never wanted to study abroad, but wanted to become either a diplomat or a border guard.
“I never wanted to study abroad. I wanted to study for a diplomat in Kyiv, but I lived in Kryvyi Rih at the time, and Kyiv was like ‘abroad’ for me. I had such a feeling,” Zelensky said, adding that he also wanted to become a border guard, but now he is “not a border guard, but also protecting our state a little bit.”
In addition, Zelensky said his family was the best project in his life.
