Zelenskyy — First Foreign Leader Speaks in the British Parliament

March 8 Volodymyr Zelenskyy told about the war in Ukraine via video link

For Ukraine, the online performance of Zelenskyy before the House of Commons in Britain was a historically significant moment. The president of Ukraine spoke about every day of war and genocide against the Ukrainian people. Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s speech caused an ovation of British politicians — they applauded standing up.

The main points confirming war crimes against Ukrainians were:

  • "On the 1st day at 4 a.m. cruise missiles flew on us. So all woke up — we, children, all of us alive people, all of Ukraine. And since then we do not sleep";
  • "On the 3rd day, the Russian armies did not hide, just hit people, residential houses by artillery, aerial bombs. And it finally showed us, showed the world who is who. Who are great people, and who are just animals»;
  • "On the 6th day, Russian missiles fell on Babi Yar. This is the place where the Nazis executed 100 thousand people during the Second World War. Eighty years later, Russia killed them a second time";
  • "On the 9th day, we listened to the meeting of NATO countries. And without the desired result for us. Without courage. So we felt this, I don’t want to offend anyone, we felt that the alliances are inactive. Even the sky cannot close";
  • "50 children were killed during the 13 days of the Russian invasion. 50 great martyrs. This is terrible! It’s emptiness. Instead of 50 universes that could have lived, they took them away. They just took them," all of which Zelenskyy was not afraid to say in Britain.
