VOLODYMYR Zelensky's wife Olena told The Sun's Piers Morgan that Russia's brutal invasion of Ukraine has brought the couple closer together.
Piers travelled to Kyiv for a world exclusive TalkTV sit-down chat with Ukraine's first couple – which will be shown tomorrow at 8pm.
Speaking together for the first time to international media, the Zelenskys opened up about their relationship since the Vladimir Putin's vicious attack on Ukraine.
The couple have been married for almost 20 years after first meeting while they were at school – and they have two children, a son Kyrylo and a daughter Oleksandra.
"I agree with the theory that marriage gets stronger with challenges. I think in our case it would be the same," she told Piers.
"We have become more interested in each other. I think in our case it will be the same story.

Trials make us stronger, spending time with people like Piers Morgan makes us wiser
After the interview, Olena tweeted: "Trials make us stronger, spending time with people like Piers Morgan makes us wiser.
"Thank you for the wonderful conversation and the opportunity to look at myself from unexpected perspectives."
Ukraine continues to mount a valiant defence against the the much larger Russian invading force – being supported with weapons and aide from a Western effort being led by Britain.
Piers travelled to Kyiv for an audience with the couple and he earlier moderated, at the invitation of the First Lady, the Second Summit of First Ladies and Gentlemen on Saturday.
The interview will mark a special week of programming on TalkTV -Piers Morgan Uncensored in Ukraine.
It will also feature another world exclusive interview with Wladmir and Vitali Klitschko speaking about the horrors of the war – which has been raging since February.
Piers took a 12-hour nighttime train journey into Kyiv where he arrived or the summit on Saturday.
He explained: “The world must not and cannot move on from Ukraine. That’s why I’m going there.”
He added at first he felt safe and normal in Kyiv but the constant sirens are a tense reminder of the ongoing war being raged by Russia.
