Putin claims Ukraine invasion a ‘success’ as West plans new arms shipments


Zelensky invokes Pearl Harbor, 9/11 to ask Congress for a no-fly zone

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addresses the US Congress, where he reiterates his demand for a no-fly zone, but says that if it cannot be granted, his country needs systems to prevent attacks.

“I am proud to greet you from Kyiv, a city that is under missile and air strikes from Russian troops, but does not give up,” he said.

Zelensky refers to the Founding Fathers of the United States and the values ​​they transmitted to the American people.

“We in Ukraine want the same for our people,” says Zelensky.

The Ukrainian president also refers to the Pearl Harbor and 9/11 attacks, “when innocent people were assaulted from the air and you couldn’t stop it.”

“Our country is going through the same thing,” he says.

“Russia has turned Ukrainian skies into a source of death for many people,” he says, calling for a no-fly zone.

“If it’s too much, we need systems [to prevent attacks],” he says.

He is introduced by United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who says she has the “great privilege and honor to introduce” the Ukrainian president.

“Slava Ukraini,” says Pelosi, using the Ukrainian national slogan.
