On March 16, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky gave an online speech to the US Congress, urging the country to take more drastic action to support Ukraine in the context of the ongoing Russian military campaign.
Zelensky again called on Washington to establish a no-fly zone above Ukraine’s airspace, and offered an alternative if the above request could not be met. That is: aid more aircraft and air defense systems.
Participating in the speech were congressmen from two houses of the US Congress. Before and after the Ukrainian leader’s speech, all the audience stood up and clapped.
During Zelensky’s speech, the atmosphere in the auditorium was so quiet that “you could hear a pin drop”, some people used their phones to record and the sound was turned on low. . CNN reporter commented: “Not too eloquent, but soft and emotional” when talking about Mr. Zelensky’s speech.
