VIDEO: Zelenskyy tells Congress that ‘against all odds’ Ukraine still stands

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said that “against all odds” Ukraine still stands, as he paid a defiant wartime visit to Washington to thank U.S. leaders and “ordinary Americans” for their support in fighting off Russia’s invasion. And he is pledging there will be “no compromises” in trying to bring an end to the war. President Joe Biden and Congress are responding with billions in new assistance and a pledge to help Ukraine pursue a “just peace.” Biden welcomed Zelenskyy to the Oval Office on Wednesday, saying the U.S. and Ukraine would continue to project a “united defense” as Russia wages a “brutal assault on Ukraine’s right to exist as a nation.”
