Written by awawa on March 21, 2022
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who has emphasised his Judaism in seeking to rally Jewish and Israeli support for his country during the Russian invasion, was due to address Israel’s parliament .
In an international tour via video conference, Zelensky has spoken to several foreign legislatures since the invasion launched on February 24, including the United States Congress, Britain’s House of Commons and Germany’s Bundestag.
A spokesman for the Knesset, Israel’s legislature, told newsmen that Zelensky’s speech was scheduled for 6:00 pm (1600 GMT), as the humanitarian situation deteriorates in besieged Ukrainian cities under relentless Russian bombardment.
Zelensky will address lawmakers in a country where more than one million of its 9.4 million residents have roots in the former Soviet Union.
