Biggest Takeaway From Zelenskyy Speech? He Wants More Than What He’s Been Given

Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, was received by President Joe Biden on Wednesday at the White House, sending a message that the United States will keep funding Ukraine even after Russia invaded the nation. Zelensky declared that he and Biden have the “same principles” after the president promised to assist Ukraine for “as long as it takes” while donning his trademark long-sleeved green shirt.

“We struggle to overthrow this dictatorship together. That is actual life. And we’ll triumph. And I want us to triumph as a team. Not want, I’m sure,” Zelensky stated earlier on Tuesday while he was seated next to Biden at the White House.


Later that night, Zelensky began his testimony to a joint session of Congress by describing what it is like to “fight” on the “battlefield. T “The blood has stained every square inch of that country. Every hour, the thunder of weapons roars. Trenches in the Donbas frequently shift hands in bloody battles and sometimes hand-to-hand combat, but the Ukrainian Donbas endures, he added.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who has criticized sending help to Ukraine, remained sitting while both Democrats and Republicans applauded.  Additionally, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) declined to accompany Zelensky into the Capitol rotunda with his fellow congressional leaders.

According to the president of Ukraine, their money is “not charity,” but rather a “investment.”

“Your contributions are not being given to charity. Zelensky added, “Your support is important, not just to stand in such a war but to reach to the turning point to win on the battlefield. It’s an investment in the world security and democracy that we handle most carefully.

Zelensky’s arrival in Washington, D.C., was timed to the Biden administration’s generous $1.85 billion donation of further military aid, which included a Patriot missile battery for defense. In the $1.7 trillion omnibus measure proposed by the Democrats, Ukraine will receive an additional gift of $45,000,000,000.

Zelensky cautioned that the sum is “not adequate,” even after the U.S. has previously granted him billions in additional military and financial aid. I came to the United States to express my gratitude to the American people, who do so much for Ukraine, Zelensky remarked.

In his final speech, the president of Ukraine compared Americans to Ukrainians by quoting former U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt.


“As I stand here, I think of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s comments, which are so appropriate at this time. According to Zelensky, “the American people will triumph in all of their rightful force and become the ultimate winner. Absolutely.”

In a video that was published this week, Zelenksky explained that the main goal of his trip to the US is to ensure that money for his nation doesn’t run out. Biden told Zelensky earlier in the day that speaking with the Ukrainian president in person and “seeing each other in the eye” was “very profound.”

Biden also informed the man who consistently conveys the picture of a president engaged in combat on the front lines that he had been chosen Time Magazine’s “Man of the Year.”

Everyone should be wondering why the U.S. is spending so much time and money on Ukraine while it is dealing with some of the gravest issues in its history. Even though recent Gallup polling indicates that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine doesn’t rank among Americans’ top ten concerns and most recently registered at zero percent in a survey of Americans’ top problems, Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell stated earlier this week that aiding Ukraine is the “number on priority” for the United States.

Our nation might not be dealing with record-high inflation and a border overrun by unauthorized immigrants if Biden invested half as much effort in addressing issues that the United States is facing as he has in supporting Zelensky.
