‘Every Day is 9/11 for Ukraine’, Leader Tells US Congress, Begging for Help

Every day is like a “9/11” for the people of Ukraine because of the devastating war Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin is waging against them, claimed Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy, as he begged for help in his first official speech to the United States Congress.

Zelenskyy addressed both chambers of Congress on Wednesday morning for the first time through an official public live video speech.

Bleeding Ukraine Resorts to Invoking MLK

Zelenskyy’s speech came after he remarked Ukraine may have to accept it will never join NATO, the US-led mutual defense alliance of 30 North American and European countries.

At the same time, the Ukrainian government rejected a proposal by the regime of Vladimir Putin that Ukraine becomes a “neutral” country, such as Sweden or Austria.

This is a likely trick, since it doesn’t seem like Moscow will give up wanting to control Ukraine for as long as Russia remains unbroken.

Instead, the Zelenskyy Cabinet is demanding legally binding guarantees that major powers will come to its aid in the event of an attack; such guarantees are found only in Article 5 of the NATO Alliance treaty.

Zelenskyy invoked the famous “I Have a Dream” speech of Martin Luther King Jr., replacing it with “I have a need.”

He said the need is for the protection of Ukraine’s sky, as he called for all-out military aid for Ukraine on part of the United States.

Zelenskyy urged once again the US and its NATO allies to impose a “no-fly zone” over Ukraine.

The West is resisting this because it would involve the US and NATO shooting down Russian warplanes, likely leading to World War III and, even worse, a nuclear war that will destroy the world.

For all the aid to Ukraine that Biden has been touting, Zelenskyy found an ingenious way to blast Biden’s insufficient resolve to stand up to Putin. The Ukrainian leader said he wished Biden would indeed become the “leader of the world.”

While he praised the United States as a “great nation”, Zelenskyy urged Biden to become “the leader of peace”, a proposition followed by a standing ovation on the part of US lawmakers.

New Alliance Outside of NATO

In his speech to the US Congress, Ukrainian leader Zelenskyy called for the setting up of a new alliance outside NATO.

This would provide the same security guarantees to Ukraine on America’s part, as NATO does for its members. The move is likely motivated by the unwillingness of some of the European members of NATO to challenge Russia by allowing Ukraine to join the pact.

During his address to the two chambers of the United States Congress, Zelenskyy played a video showing the havoc and destruction Russian military hordes have caused in Ukraine.

Just as Zelenskyy was about to start his video address to the United States Congress, in yet another war crime committed by Russians in the 20-day rape of Ukraine, Russian troops shot dead ten civilians waiting in line for bread in Chernihiv.
