Ukraine's First Lady, Olena Zelenska, and Turkey's First Lady, Emine Erdogan, have agreed on the evacuation of two orphanages from the Odesa region.

The wife of the Ukrainian president said this in an interview with BBC Russian, Ukrinform reports.

"We have agreed with Mrs. Emine Erdogan on the evacuation of two orphanages from the Odesa region. These are very young children under the age of three, for whom it is dangerous to stay in Ukraine now. I think that they will go to Turkey already in a few weeks," Zelenska said.

She noted that she does not feel her colleagues are fatigued by the Russian-Ukrainian war. Zelenska expressed gratitude for the fact that they all understand that the war in Ukraine is a global war, a war of worldviews.

"Everyone chooses who they are with. And they are with me. They are with us. All my colleagues at the Summit [Summit of First Ladies and Gentlemen] -- we do a lot together. Some of them have such close contact that we can skip the formal ten minutes of greetings during the meeting and immediately start talking about our projects," Zelenska added.

She specified that a lot of projects were in the pipeline – those related to humanitarian aid, evacuation of children from Ukraine. In this context, the first lady said that the evacuation of children with oncological diseases had begun from the first days of the war. Zelenska said that her colleagues from other countries played a huge role in this issue, among them First Ladies Agata Kornhauser-Duda of Poland, Brigitte Macron of France and Elke Budenbender of Germany.
