A user wrote on Twitter: “What a horrible trivialisation of the Ukrainian war […] What a way to play into Putin’s game and his propaganda.”

Another shared: “A massive amount of Ukrainian soldiers are dying every day, and Zelensky [thinks to himself] ‘let’s do a shoot with Vogue'”

In the exclusive interview with Vogue, the First Lady talks about her marriage to Volodymyr, who went from comic to president in a few years.

She also talks about the conflict and says she has no doubts about Ukraine’s final victory.
