UK: Zelensky Given A Standing Ovation By MPs

Volodymyr Zelensky pleaded for fighter jets for Ukraine today as he delivered an emotional address to MPs and Peers in Westminster Hall.

The Ukrainian President was given a rapturous reception as he arrived in the historic building to deliver a speech on his first visit since the Russian invasion.

Watched by Rishi Sunak, and with Boris Johnson in the audience, Mr Zelensky insisted that more help will be needed to defeat the Russian aggressors. He presented Speaker Lindsay Hoyle with a helmet signed by one of Kyiv's top pilots and appealed for the UK to supply 'powerful' aircraft - after Mr Sunak announced that Britain will train forces in how to fly them.
