Diplomatic Visit of the FL of Ukraine in France

On December 13, the first meeting of Olena Zelenska with the first lady of France and the director general of UNESCO took place in Paris

Olena Zelenska thanked France, represented by Brigitte Macron, for the help Ukraine receives from France. It is noteworthy that this assistance comes not only at the state's initiative, but also from the hands of ordinary citizens. Zelenska especially thanked the friendly state for the caring reception of Ukrainian children with cancer, who are now receiving treatment in French hospitals.

Paris has become the first city in the country where education in the Ukrainian language and online Ukrainian language courses are officially available. This option became available as part of the creation of conditions under which refugee children will be able to receive education and feel in their native environment. 1 of these schools was visited today by the first ladies of Ukraine and France.

Today in Paris, the Olena Zelenska Foundation will be presented, whose work has 3 vectors: healthcare, education and humanitarian assistance. 

"I created the Foundation so that everyone in the world can join the restoration of Ukraine, first of all, the provision of humanitarian assistance, the restoration of hospitals and schools. I think the French, who have always valued human rights (and the most indisputable of them - the right to life) will not stand aside here either. After all, human rights have no boundaries," Olena Zelenska.

Also on December 14, Zelenska met with UNESCO director-general Audrey Azoulay. The First Lady thanked Azule for all the measures that the organization is taking to help Ukraine, as well as for the opening of the UNESCO office in Kyiv. Zelenska focused on protecting the cultural heritage of Ukraine, which is now in great danger.

We remind you that earlier Olena Zelenskaa held a diplomatic tour of England.
