Plea for Help
Olena Zelenska, Ukraine’s first lady, asks Congress for weapons while delivering remarks at the U.S. Capitol on July 20. She detailed the devastation in Ukraine, emphasizing violence against children, in the war effort. “Russia is destroying our people,” she said. During her trip, Zelenska also met with First Lady Jill Biden; the two women first met in person on Mother’s Day when Biden made a surprise visit to Ukraine.
