Vladimir Zelensky: I speak with God in places where I feel comfortable
The President said that he comes from a common Soviet Jewish and non-Orthodox family.
The head of Ukraine, Vladimir Zelensky said in an interview with “The Times of Israel” that he believes in God and speaks with Him in places where he feels comfortable.
Answering a journalist’s question about the importance of religious issues, the President noted that his attitude to faith has changed with age.
“ I never speak about religion and I never speak about God because I have my own personal opinion about it. Of course, I believe in God. But I speak with Him only in those moments which are personal and important for me, and where I feel comfortable,” Zelensky emphasized.
According to him, most Jewish families in the Soviet Union were not religious, and there was no religion as such in the state.
As reported earlier, in the New Year's greetings, Vladimir Zelensky recalled that to love Ukraine means to love all Ukrainians and urged the people of Ukraine to respect each other.
