On Wednesday, March 16, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed the US Congress. Zelenskyy cited the Pearl Harbor & 9/11 terror attacks as he urged the US for more help against Russia.
Zelenskyy addressed the Capitol complex through videoconferencing. He asked Congress to impose more restrictions on Russia & its lawmakers while showcasing a video of the destruction in Ukraine. “We need you right now, I call on you to do more,” said Zelenskyy.
“Peace is more important than income,” stated Zelenskyy on imposing more restrictions on Russia. After delivering a powerful speech the Congressmen gave a standing ovation to Zelenskyy.
Meanwhile, Russia has imposed sanctions on US President Joe Biden & other top officials. Zelenskyy is also at odds with Biden as the US President is avoiding to direct confront Russia. Biden has clearly stated that there will be no US troops or warplanes in Ukraine. “Direct conflict between NATO and Russia is World War III,” said Joe Biden.
US Senate has also ordered a probe against Russian President Vladimir Putin for his unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.
