Zelenskyy Pleads With Biden To Step Up In The Name Of Peace

As Russia's invasion of Ukraine continues, Zelenskyy addressed Congress virtually from Kyiv. The Ukrainian president expressed gratitude to the United States for its assistance, but stated that more is required.

“Remember Pearl Harbor, the terrible morning of Dec. 7, 1941, when your sky was black from the planes attacking you,” Zelenskyy said. “Remember Sept. 11, a terrible day in 2001 when evil tried to turn your cities, independent territories, into battlefields. When innocent people were attacked from the air.”

“Our country is experiencing the same every day, right now, at this moment. Every night for three weeks now,” he continued, as he tried to relate with Americans on what Ukraine is going through while reminding the U.S. what being under attack was like.

Zelenskyy has urged that the United States impose a no-fly zone once more, which the administration has repeatedly stated that it will not do.

Despite his push for a no-fly zone, Zelenskyy admitted that the US has stated that it will not be implemented. During his speech, he also proposed an alternative, requesting surface-to-air missile weapons to allow Ukraine to defend its skies.

Zelenskyy also demanded that President Joe Biden's administration place all Russian lawmakers on a blacklist. He also urged all American businesses to exit the Russian market.

During his speech to Congress, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko showed members a video with viral photos and footage depicting the country's devastation.

The video showed dead women and children, bodies being thrown into mass graves, buildings that had been destroyed, and more. The video concluded with a request to “close the skies.”

Zelenskyy ended his speech with a direct plea to Biden: “Being the leader of the world means to be the leader of peace,” Zelenskyy declared.
