Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky reminded the US parliament of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, on the United States.
He wanted to reinforce his demand for more military support after the bloody Russian invasion of Ukraine three weeks ago.
The president addressed Congress via an online connection from the beleaguered Ukrainian capital Kyiv. Zelenski also pointed to the Japanese surprise attack on the US naval base at Pearl Harbor in late 1941. That blow got the United States involved in World War II.
Finally, Zelensky reiterated his demand for a no-fly zone over Ukraine so that the Russians cannot attack from the air. “Russia turned the Ukrainian sky into a source of death for thousands of people.”
Zelensky was greeted with a standing ovation. He previously spoke to the European, British, and Canadian parliaments.
