In a new interview, President Volodymyr Zelensky has shared that when he is able to take a rare moment for himself during the Russia-Ukraine war, he loves listening to AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses and Eric Clapton.

Speaking with CNN about how he’s coping with the ongoing war and these incredibly difficult times, he shares that it’s important for him on occasion “to be in silence, to be alone. How can I be alone? Alone I can be with music.”

When asked specifically what music he likes, Zelensky replies: “Oh, I like AC/DC! And Ukrainian music – of course I like Ukrainian music because that’s the native language – that’s why you understand not only the music but the words, etc.

“AC/DC, I don’t understand all the words (laughs), but I like the energy of AC/DC. Eric Clapton, Guns N’ Roses…”

He adds that he’ll listen to these artists often at “six, seven in the morning” while he’s working out, and that it gives him “energy for all the day”.

Sharing a link to the Zelensky interview, Guns N’ Roses tweeted that they were “Among good company.”
