President Volodymyr Zelenskyy spent a day outdoors picnicking alongside Ukrainian journalists.

That's according to Zelensky's Instagram account.

"I spent the day with the journalists on the eve of their professional holiday. This time it was barbecue I cooked with my own hands, excellent weather and, as always, a friendly atmosphere. Conversation without taboos, sharp questions, and my honest answers. It's nice that such meetings have already become a good tradition," Zelensky wrote on the social media platform.
