by Lydia Davies

At the commemoration of the 80th D-Day anniversary in Normandy, France, an emotional exchange unfolded between President Volodymyr Zelensky and a D-Day veteran.

The veteran, upon meeting Zelensky, expressed his admiration, saying: “You are the savior of the people.”

Zelensky responded, “No, no – you saved Europe.”

Zelensky, who embraced the veteran and held his hand, kneeled to be at the same level as the veteran, before the WWII hero said: "I pray for you." 

The heartfelt interaction between them led to a standing ovation from the audience as both insisted to each other: “You're our hero."
