LIVE: Zelensky makes speech before US Congress today

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will ask Congress for more military gear when he addresses lawmakers on Wednesday as pressure is on the White House to be more aggressive in its response to Russia ’s invasion.

Zelensky is expected to ask for help in shoring up his country’s ground-based air-defense system and could make a plea for fighter jets, which the Biden administration has rejected, when he makes his video address.
