Zelensky calls for Russia to be named a ‘terrorist state’

Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky has spoken to the House of Commons via video, thanking the UK for its support since Russia's invasion and calling for Russia to be named a ‘terrorist state’.

Invoking Winston Churchill, Zelensky said ‘we will not surrender, we will not lose, we will go to the end’ as he urged allies to ‘make sure our skies are safe’.

Speaking to MPs, Zelensky gave a day-by-day account of the invasion by Russia, which began a fortnight ago. He described how it was a war Ukraine ‘didn't start and didn't want’.

Leaders of the main political parties in the Commons then made speeches to praise President Zelensky's efforts against the Russian Invasion.
