The First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska asked the US Congress to provide more support in fighting Russia’s war.
In a passionate speech, she stated that she was asking for weapons. Weapons that are not used to wage war on another country, but to defend one’s own home.
This comes just days after Russia claimed that its war goals had expanded beyond eastern Ukraine. Sergei Lavrov, Foreign Minister, implied that it was in response the West providing longer-range weapons.
