First Lady Olena Zelenska made a powerful speech in the US Congress. She thanked the United States for its support and appealed to help Ukraine stop russian terror and provide more weapons to protect the peace and lives of Ukrainians.
“I am asking for something now that I would never want to ask for. I am asking you for weapons! Weapons that will not be used to wage a war on somebody else's land but to protect one's home and the right to wake up alive in it. I'm asking you for air defense systems in order for rockets not to kill children in their strollers. So that the rockets do not destroy children's rooms and kill entire families,” said Olena Zelenska.
She called on the American people to help stop the terror against Ukrainians, and this “will be our joint great victory in the name of life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness of every person and every family.”
Olena Zelenska became the first wife of a foreign leader addressing the US Congress.
