Ukrainian actress Ada Rogovtseva showed an archival photo with the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valerii Zaluzhnyi and shared what he is like in life during communication.

So, in her photo blog, Rogovtseva unexpectedly spoke about Valery Zaluzhny. According to her, they met long before the commander-in-chief became recognizable. And she added that Valery is endowed with the best human traits.

"I am grateful to fate for giving me personal communication with Valerii Zaluzhnyi before his name became familiar to every Ukrainian and known all over the world. And the first thing I learned about Valery Fedorovich was that he was a man of his word. It was thanks to his efforts that Dmytro Kotsiubailo, the legendary commander of the 1st Assault Company of the Ukrainian Volunteer Corps, received the title of Hero of Ukraine even before his unit joined the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine," Ada wrote.

In addition, the artist began to recall significant events with the participation of Zaluzhny. In particular, in 2021, he visited the October Palace in Kyiv to solemnly attach the Hero's Gold Star to Dmytro Kotsiubailo's tunic.

"The meeting of the Hero-Volunteer Da Vinci and Commander-in-Chief Zaluzhny on the stage of the October Palace, when Valery Fedorovich personally came to congratulate and attach the Gold Star of the Hero to Dmytro's tunic, will remain unforgettable," the artist said.

In turn, Ada expressed gratitude to the commander-in-chief in almost every sentence. She noted the main merits of Zaluzhnyi.

"Among my friends who were brought to the army in 2014, there are those who had to serve in the units commanded by Valery Fedorovich. From their stories, I was convinced of what I saw for myself: highly educated, professional, humane, brave, fully devoted to military affairs, loyal to Ukraine. Zaluzhny became the personification of his army and his time. The general has all the degrees of military education behind him and all with honors. He is engaged in his life's work and has achieved world recognition in it by stopping the Russian army. We are lucky to have Zaluzhny at the head of the army at this historical time," the actress shared.

Earlier, Valery Zaluzhny shared a rare photo with his wife Elena. The couple demonstrated a family look by choosing identical hoodies.
