Ukraine president tells US Congress to ‘remember’ Pearl Harbor and 9/11 attacks

The Ukrainian president has asked the US Congress in Washington to “remember” Pearl Harbor and the 9/11 attacks, when “innocent people” were attacked from the air, as he called for more support.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy was greeted with a standing ovation ahead of his powerful remarks, which he made through a video link from Ukraine.

Echoing the words of Martin Luther King, Mr Zelenskyy told US politicians: “I have a dream… I have a need… I need to protect our sky – I need your decision, your help.”

He added Russia had “attacked not just us, not just our land, not just our cities, it went on a brutal offensive against our values”.

Referring to the 9/11 attacks and Pearl Harbor, he told Congress “you could not stop it – our country experienced the same every day”.
