Ukraine “never surrenders”: Zelensky delivers an historic address to U.S. Congress



Ukrainian President has delivered an historic address to U.S. lawmakers in his first visit abroad since the war began

President Volodymyr Zelensky has urged U.S. lawmakers to continue their supply of weapons to Ukraine, as Russian forces continue to “use everything” against the war-ravaged nation.

Mr Zelensky said the ongoing fight during the festive season is a reminder of the Battle of the Bulge during World War II.

The battle was fought 80 years ago against the Nazis.

“Just like the brave American soldiers who held their lines and fought Hilter’s forces.

“Brave Ukrainian forces are doing the same to Putin’s forces this Christmas,” he said.

It is the wartime leader’s first-known visit abroad since the start of the war on 24 February.

“Against all odds, and doom and gloom, Ukraine did not fall. Ukraine is alive and kicking.”

“The Russian tyranny has lost control over us.”


The U.S. announced more support for Ukraine, including a Patriot missile defence system. These devices boast surveillance, tracking, and engagement functionality.

Earlier in the day, Zelensky met with U.S. President Joe Biden in the Oval Office.

“American people are prepared to have us stand up to bullies,” Biden said.

Mr Zelensky maintained a “just peace” would mean an end to the war with no territorial compromises.

Russian President Vladimir Putin believes Moscow is not to blame for the war. He maintains the war is a “special military operation” aimed to de-Nazifying Ukraine.

Is the U.S. debt deal bad fiscal policy?



While President Joe Biden and Republican leadership came to an agreement on the debt limit—some lawmakers say the fiscal policy is a bad deal and does not rein in spending.

The executive branch and Congress tried to strike a deal about the debt limit as the country marched closer to defaulting.

The Treasury has been warning that the government could run out of money sometime in the beginning of June and would likely default on some bills if Congress does not raise the debt ceiling.

Democrats have insisted on raising the debt limit without preconditions.

But, Republicans say President Joe Biden and the Democrats are playing Russian roulette with America’s economy after a two-year spending binge that brought 40-year high inflation and pushed the nation’s debt to over $31-trillion.

While President Biden and Republican leadership came to an agreement on the debt limit—many lawmakers say the fiscal policy is a bad deal and does not rein in spending.

Is President Biden securing a ‘made in America’ supply chain for critical minerals?



Rare earths elements are responsible for some of the most important materials involved in electric vehicle production, battery making, renewable energy systems and technology manufacturing.

Last year, President Joe Biden said he wanted to make rare earths an important domestic policy initiative and he signed an executive order to review gaps in the domestic supply chains for rare earths, medical devices, chips, and other key resources.

The Department of Energy announced a $30 million initiative to tap into researching and securing the U.S. domestic supply chain for rare earths and other important minerals in battery-making production.

But at the same time, President Biden also blocked the mining of rare earth minerals on more than 225,000 acres of federal land for more than 20 years.

Is it possible for the U.S. to change course and again have a seat at the table in producing rare earths elements?

To discuss further, Luisa Moreno the President of the Defense Metals Corp. joined us.
