President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has said that the most difficult moment in his 100 days as president was the news on four troops killed in Donbas in one day, as well as his conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"The most difficult moment, perhaps, was when there were four KIAs and, following that, when I spoke with the Russian president," Zelensky said in an interview with 1+1 TV channel.

Zelensky also noted that he no longer felt like an actor.

Answering the question: "If you look deeply into your soul, who are you? An actor or already a politician?” Zelensky replied: "Who am I? I am no longer an actor."

In addition, he added that, despite becoming president, he remained a human being.

"I definitely remain a human being, and those things that appear in a person's life after they receive such a position, didn't break me," Zelensky stressed.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on Aug 6, four troops with the 36th Marine Corps Brigade were killed in an enemy shelling near Pavlopil during routine engineering works.

Following the deadly attack, Zelensky urged the Normandy Four (apart from Ukraine, it is Russia, Germany, France) leaders to convene a top-level meeting as soon as possible, and also spoke over the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
