Zelenskyy to USA: “We need you now”

Prior to Biden’s appearance, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Gelenskiz, 44, addressed the US Congress.

“Russia has turned the Ukrainian sky into a source of death for thousands of people,” he said. There should be new sanctions against Russia every week, while Ukraine urgently needs more weapons and a no-fly zone.

“Now, in the dark time for our country and the whole of Europe, I urge you to do more,” he said, according to the English translation.

Delegates and senators responded with applause to Zhelensky’s speech. Speaking in both houses of the US Congress is considered a special and rare honor.

In his appeal for help, Zelensky also reminded Americans of their own struggle against attackers. Referring to the Japanese invasion of 1941, he said, “Remember Pearl Harbor.” “Remember 9/11,” he added, referring to the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington. “We need you now.”

Biden announced the supply of weapons. Once again, he did not fulfill Jelensky’s wish for a no-fly zone.
