The wife of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Olena Zelenska, addressed Congress in the US Capitol Building on Wednesday and asked for the US to send more weapons to Ukraine.
“I’m asking for weapons, weapons that would not be used to wage a war on somebody else’s land, but to protect one’s home and the right to wake up alive in that home,” Zelenska said.
Before speaking to Congress, Zelenska met with Secretary of State Antony Blinken at the State Department and first lady Jill Biden at the White House. Jill Biden previously met with Zelenska when she made a surprise visit to Ukraine in May.
Also on Wednesday, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said the US would be sending Ukraine four more High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) as part of the next weapons package that will be announced later this week. Ukraine has been using the HIMARS against Russia and could potentially use the rocket systems against Russian targets in Crimea.
The next weapons package will be the 16th that the US has sent to Ukraine since Russia invaded on February 24 and would bring the total HIMARS the US pledged to 16. Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said that Ukraine would need at least 100 HIMARS for them to be a “game-changer” on the battlefield.

Did she also mention baby incubators ?
The allegations of Russians raping children, etc, falls into that dialog that was used to effect during our invasion of Iraq.
No more money for foreign wars! Stay home #####.
Holy moly, the full court propaganda press is on … was this lady talking to her husband when the artillery was firing into the seceding republics earlier this year? Their right to be safe in their homes was no good?
Go away! Fund your own wars! If you don’t want to fight then start the talks for peace, it’s the much better option anyways.
She also asked Pentagon to send her more Buttons for her button fashion…!
She’d be better off convincing her pudgy husband not to wear his t-shirt two sizes too small.
Like husband…Like wife…!
Did she make excuses for her regime “killing his own people?”
The respect and acceptance given to the lies of this régime and the refusal even to consider that Russia has spent 8 years trying to solve its disagreements with the illegal installed “governments” of Ukraine by peaceful UN-backed methods (Minsk accords) tells us that the US and its Western toadies care NOT AT ALL about the Ukrainian people who are being sent to their deaths every day by this “lady’s” husband and his oligarchic controllers.
“While Russia kills, America saves, and you should know about it. We thank you for that,” Zelenska added, pointing to the 15 military aid packages committed thus far.
What. A. Stupid. Bitch.
and her husband filled his pockets. They have come so low and still like in Afghanistan they don’t stop as long as others do the dying and they can collect the money living in a safe place, characterless criminals that includes the Biden people.
Wars, if I weren’t such a feminist, I pull out the “C-word” on her.
What the hell business does the likes of her have begging Amerikkkan taxpayers to further fund her stupid husband’s mistakes?
Zelenska, go home and cheer on your troops while they castrate Russian POWs.
