Today Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, at the invitation of Assembly President Tiny Kox.

Prior to his speech the Ukrainian President received a warm welcome by the Assembly. Kox expressed his appreciation for the Ukrainian President: 'The applause you just received shows how much we appreciate your courage, your determination, but also your wise words and the wisdom that you shared with us on how to bring this war to an end as soon as possible and to restore justice, national sovereignty, and the territorial integrity of your country.'

In his speech, Zelensky spoke, among other things, about the need for European unity in response to aggression from the Russian Federation. He spoke about the power of dialogue in ending the terrible war that has plagued his country since February and praised the unity with which the Council of Europe stripped Russia of its membership in February.

President Kox thanked Zelensky for his speech: 'We all consider Russia's unilateral aggression as an attack against the multilateral cooperation that is meant to protect all our citizens in Europe. That is why we try to do whatever is in our mandate to support your country and your citizens in these most challenging and dangerous times.'
