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.
