Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is set to address the US Congress on Wednesday by video stream, the second such address in the past month.
US President Joe Biden is expected to announce an additional $800 million (€729 million) in security assistance to Ukraine in the aftermath of Zelenskyy’s speech.
This would bring the total announced over the last week up to $1 billion (€910 million), according to a White House official.
Meanwhile, Zelenskyy told European leaders gathered in London on Tuesday that he realized NATO has no intention of accepting Ukraine, while still urging the alliance to enforce a no-fly zone over the country.
Zelenskyy said in his Wednesday video address that Russia’s demands were becoming “more realistic,” following Tuesday cease-fire talks between the two countries. The two sides are expected to meet again on Wednesday.
