Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has just been addressing the European Parliament in their special session.
He says what is happening in his country is a tragedy and they are fighting for their land, their freedom and their lives. He said: “Nobody will break us, because we are Ukrainians.”
He also says Russia has been attacking Ukrainian children, with 16 dying yesterday.
He calls for the Parliament to “prove you are together with us”, prove they will not repel Ukraine and prove they are “real Europeans”.
Zelensky, speaking over a video link, was given a standing ovation.
