Zelensky will address the German parliament on Tuesday


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will give a speech in the German parliament next Tuesday during his visit to Berlin.

Parliamentary sources told dpa on Friday that Zelensky will address the Bundestag while attending the two-day Ukraine Recovery Conference in Berlin on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The German government had previously confirmed that Zelensky would open the conference on Tuesday together with Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

Zelensky addressed German lawmakers via video link on March 17, 2022, three weeks after the start of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine. At the time, the president made an impassioned appeal to German politicians to help his invaded country. His speech ended with a plea: “Support us. Support peace. Support every Ukrainian. Stop the war. Help us stop it!”

Zelenskiy has addressed numerous legislatures of other countries over the past two years to appeal for military, financial, diplomatic and humanitarian aid.

The Bundestag will meet for a regular session next week. However, it will have to adjust its usual schedule to accommodate the speech, as normally only parliamentary groups meet on Tuesday afternoon, and not parliament as a whole.
