Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was met with a standing ovation from diplomats as he addressed the European Parliament, telling those in attendance that his country is “fighting for survival.”
“We are fighting just for our land and our freedom,” Zelensky said, causing the EU translator on the English language feed to choke up with emotion. “We desire to see our children alive. I think it’s a fair one.”
“We are fighting for our life … We are fighting for survival. This is the highest of our motivation,” Zelensky said.
“But we are fighting also to be equal members of Europe,” he added. “I believe that today we are showing everybody that’s exactly what we are.”
Zelensky requested for Ukraine to be added to the EU on an expedited process on Monday.
He received a standing ovation across the chamber both before and after his speech.
