Petro Poroshenko is confident that not everyone can cope with what he is doing as a President of Ukraine. Poroshenko said that to the journalist Maryna Baranovska in a film “One day with a president”.
The journalist asked the head of the state what for he agreed to live this stressful kind of life.
“My answer shall be very modest. It was back in 2014. If I knew during the war that everything would still be done no matter whether you go there or not, that we would manage to create an army, a word coalition, to muster efforts of all world leaders and that this can be done anyone but not me, I could possibly accept this “why do you need this?”. I am still firmly convinced that for others it will be very hard to do what I am doing now,” he said.
Poroshenko also told about the tight schedule of his wife Maryna, who “could have stayed at home an do not deal with inclusive education or charity”.
“I am telling her, that it’s enough that I am not at home. I want you there when I come, I want you relaxed. In spite of that I come home at 2:00 – 3:00 a.m. and you get up at 6 a.m. and go somewhere. This is not good. But I love her very much, that she is the way she is, and I could be myself around her,” the President noted.
“It’s big adrenalin when you have a result,” – he summoned up.
We recall that Maryna Baranovska was invited to spend one working day with the president. On February 28, during the press conference in Mystetsky Arsenal, she asked Poroshenko 'how come that everything bad in the country but personally president is good'. The president answered that his life is not so easy and invited her to spend one day together and to change her mind. On March 16, Baranovska spent the day with Poroshenko, visiting Donbas.
On June 6, on the Journalist Day, the documentary about their visit was released.
