Amidst the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky recently shared that listening to AC/DC keeps him distracted.
In an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, the president was asked what he likes to do for himself while so many people are looking up to him and relying on him. The Ukrainian leader said:
“I have such moments. It’s important to be in silence, to be alone. Alone, how can I be alone? Alone, I can be with music or with a book early in the morning when there are no sounds, no people, nobody. I can just read, think, think. And the music helps, really.”
Talking about the music he listens to, Zelensky revealed the bands he likes saying:
“I like AC/DC and Ukrainian music. Of course, I like Ukrainian music a lot because Ukrainian, that’s native language. That’s why you understand not only music, you understand words, et cetera. AC/DC, I don’t understand all the words [laughs], but I like the energy of AC/DC. I like Eric Clapton, Guns N’ Roses… Maybe it’s too old music?”
The president also shared that he likes listening to music during his early morning workout routine. Watch the video below for the full interview.
