A rare moment of laughter for Ukraine's Zelenskiy

STORY: The couple were being interviewed in Kyiv by British television personality Piers Morgan for his program "Piers Morgan Uncensored."

Zelenska told Morgan that she only learned her husband would run for president when she saw his announcement on television.

Zelenskiy, a former comedian and actor, swept to power in 2019 promising to end Ukraine's war with Moscow-backed separatists. The Russian invasion could now lead to the overthrow of his government.
