Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addresses a joint meeting of Congress on Wednesday, December 21, 2022 at the Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky made a historic address to a joint meeting of Congress tonight.

Zelensky spoke for just over 20 minutes in English, invoking U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, thanking lawmakers for their support and vowing to defeat Russia.

He was interrupted multiple times for standing ovations.

Wednesday marked Zelensky’s first trip outside Ukraine since Russia invaded the country in February and comes as Ukrainian officials warn Moscow is preparing for a massive winter offensive.
