Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told a rare joint meeting of Congress Wednesday night that “Ukraine is alive and kicking,” while also urging members of Congress to strengthen sanctions against Russia and provide more aid.
“Against all odds and doom and gloom scenarios, Ukraine didn’t fall,” the Ukrainian president said in a speech from the House chamber.
“We have artillery, yes. Thank you. Is it enough? Honestly, not really,” Zelensky added. “Your money is not charity. It’s an investment in the global democracy and security in the most responsible way.”
