Washington, DC — He was met Tuesday with a standing ovation, but Ukraine’s President is pleading for more help as his nation struggles with the ongoing Russian invasion.
During a virtual speech to members of the U.S. Congress, President Zelensky called it a brutal and full scale Russian invasion. Speaking through a translator, he said it’s a “terror that Europe has not seen” since World War II.
Zelensky said Wednesday that Ukraine “doesn’t give up.” He thanked the U.S. for aid that has been provided and again urged NATO allies to establish a no-fly zone to stop Russian bombers. He also said new packages of sanctions against Russia are needed every week. Additionally, Zelensky played a video of Russian bombardments of Ukrainian cities and the impacts on the people of Ukraine.
