The mother of the presidential candidate Volodymyr Zelensky, Rimma stated that her son was unjustifiably defamed and expressed the opinion that it is beneficial for the current Head of State, Petro Poroshenko.
She gave the corresponding comment to “Hromadsky” TV.
“I am sick now, and with these elections I feel so bad. And I can’t stand all this dirt anymore… My husband and I cannot tolerate it. He is a decent honest man. What he earned, he earned by his labor, money. That he did not steal. Tell me, how much can you throw mud at a person?.. Explain this to me. Well, you answer me! On these all channels they only throw dirt at my son! Well, this is beneficial, I think for Poroshenko … So he just destroys him (ed. – my son)! This man should have at least some culture in him. Is it possible to behave so? They say that he (ed. – Zelensky) does not have a program, he does not have people in the team, that he is “Kremlin”, – said Rimma Zelenskaya.
She also stated that her son has an idea about the future of Ukraine, and recalled that Volodymyr Zelensky was a lawyer by education.
“First, he wants to end the war. Well, it’s impossible for so many children in Ukraine to die! Unable to continue this, how long can it continue, this dirt? I do not understand this. He graduated from school with two B’s, he graduated from the institute. He is a lawyer by education. He is not an artist by education – he is a lawyer! Do you think him such a moron and a fool? He always helped people, always took part in school activities. You can even ask the class teacher. How can you destroy a person like that? ”, Zelensky’s mother was indignant.
She assured that her son goes into politics not for money.
“He doesn’t need money, believe me. As president, he will earn less than he earns now. He just wanted everything to change in Ukraine, so that the youth would not leave, that the youth stay here. He does not need money, he is a wealthy person. He doesn’t need anything. He just cannot watch how people live here. Our pensioners receive a penny. They will receive a pension, but they cannot buy medicines… Corruption after corruption! Their pockets are filled with money, and all that is going on, it’s terrible, some kind of nightmare! And what does he (Volodymyr Zelensky, – ed.) accused of? I do not understand. For the fact that he wants Ukraine to change? ”- summed up Zelensky’s mother.
