Zelensky to Congress: Ukraine Is Experiencing Terror Not Seen in Europe for 80 Years

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky assured the U.S. Congress on Wednesday that the “terror” his country is experiencing “is something Europe hasn’t seen in 80 years” and called for new sanctions against all Russian politicians.

“Remember September 11. Ukraine is suffering from this every day. A terror that Europe has not seen in 80 years,” Zelensky said in a virtual address to the Congress that greeted him with a standing ovation.

The Ukrainian president observed that “right now” the “fate” of his country “is being decided” as Russia’s “brutal” attack is “targeting the basic human values” of Ukrainians.

Zelensky’s intervention comes after President Joe Biden signed a bill providing for $13.6 billion in military and humanitarian aid for Ukraine and countries on NATO’s eastern flank.

Zelensky thanked the international effort, but asked Biden for “a new pack” of sanctions against Russia until “the Russian military machine stops.”

“Restrictions are necessary against all on whom this unjust regime is based (…) All those (Russian politicians) who remain in office,” he added.

The Ukrainian president also insisted on the request for NATO to impose a no-fly zone in Ukraine, something both Washington and the alliance have opposed.

Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine on February 24 and began shelling major cities, causing more than three million refugees, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
