Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy descended upon the United Kingdom Wednesday and urged lawmakers to send warplanes to Ukraine ahead of his visit with King Charles III.
“Today I will have the honor to be received by His Majesty the King,” Zelenskyy said while addressing both Houses of Parliament and U.K. Prime Minster Rishi Sunak. “It will be a truly special moment for me, for our country.
“In Britain, the king is an air force pilot. And in Ukraine today every air force pilot is a king,” he said to wide applause from members of Parliament.
Zelenskyy has repeatedly called for fighter jets since the war took off nearly one year ago, but he has renewed his efforts for increased air defense as a major Russian offensive looms.
