President Zelensky Addresses MPs
Updated: Mar 10, 2022
Extraordinary scenes in the House of Commons today as Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky addressed MPs via video link.
I have never seen the Commons anything like this busy. There were MPs sitting on the stairs, in the galleries, standing in every spare spot.
The President was very clear that Ukraine will stand firm and that the Ukrainian people need all the support they can get to make this happen.
I feel privileged to have heard him, and we need to heed his calls and deliver support via tighter sanctions, military support, and we absolutely need to open up significantly to refugees.
