See below for video of Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelenskyy’s powerful speech to Congress a bit earlier this evening, as well as reactions by Virginia politicians. As Sen. Mark Warner says:

President Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian people have displayed tremendous determination and resolve over the last 10 months as they have defended their country against Russia’s unprovoked and brutal invasion. I am proud that the United States has led the world in support of Ukraine’s efforts to defend itself, and tonight’s address underscored the importance of continuing this work. We will continue to stand with the Ukrainian people, and our NATO allies, to back Ukraine – including roughly $45 billion in additional military and economic assistance to Ukraine that will be approved by Congress this week.
