Ukraine Russia War: President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday appealed for more help from the US Parliament in Ukraine's fight against Russia.
Between the Ukraine-Russia war, US President Joe Biden has announced a package of $ 800 million to Ukraine. According to a statement issued by the White House, the US will give Ukraine 800 anti-aircraft systems, 9000 anti-armour systems, 7000 small arms, 20 million rounds, unmanned aerial systems. The Defense Department will provide equipment to the Ukrainian military. Will continue to work with allies and partners to provide additional assistance to Ukraine, the statement said.
Just before US President Joe Biden's announcement, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the US Parliament and appealed for more help.
Instead of insisting on declaring a no-fly zone, Zelensky sought military help to stop the Russian offensive. It is noteworthy that the White House has refused to accept Zelensky's request to declare a no-fly zone.
Zelensky also mentioned Pearl Harbor and the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
It has been 21 days since the war between Ukraine and Russia. The United Nations says that more than 3 million people have left Ukraine so far because of the war. The UN human rights unit said 691 civilians were killed and 1,143 were injured in the war. The casualties could be even higher.
