The singer Natalia Klitschko (48) has been separated from her husband, the mayor of Kyiv and ex-professional boxer Vitali Klitschko (50), for weeks. The Ukrainian is in Hamburg while the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine continues. When asked if she was afraid for her husband Vitali in Kyiv, Natalia Klitschko now told the magazine “Superillu”: “Fear is a feeling that has no place in my life. And now I certainly won’t allow it. Worry : Yes. Of course! But I also have the basic trust that Vitali is protected.”

Natalia Klitschko: “I don’t feel hate”
The situation is difficult for their three children together. “They’re all out of the house, but we all gathered here together after the war broke out. The uncertainty was really the worst. But then again it was nice to be so close together, to support each other, to feel all this love . We exchange ideas with Vitali every day,” she said.
She doesn’t want to allow feelings like hatred even in these difficult times. “I don’t feel hate. More anger and pity. Hate eats you up inside and is not a basis for building something new.”
Natalia Klitschko: “I wouldn’t want to be a politician in these times”
She also doesn’t think much of the fact that many are now boycotting the Russian language. “That won’t help us find each other again,” stressed the 48-year-old, who took in Ukrainian refugees in Hamburg.
Natalia Klitschko said of the federal government’s Ukraine policy: “Politics is a complex business. Like chess: one wrong move can determine the game. I wouldn’t want to be a politician in these times. You can only do everything wrong, you always get it Lid.”
She wanted to put the positive in the foreground: She was “simply touched by the enormous willingness to help and solidarity” around her.
