Zelenskyy Will Make Ukraine’s Virtual Plea to Greek Parliament

ATHENS – Strongly resisting a Russian invasion but needing more international aid, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will, in a virtual address, make his country’s case directly to the Greek Parliament.

During a phone call between them, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis invited Zelenskyy to speak to lawmakers, said Kathimerini, but no date has been set for the address.

Greece was among the first countries to send military equipment to Ukraine but has since backed off after ferocious criticism from Russia and rejected a request to send anti-aircraft weapons to help.

Greece has also not accepted Zelenskyy’s request to stop buying Russian oil and gas, do business with Russia, stop sending Greek ships to Russia and letting Russian ships come to Greece, saying that’s financing the invasion.



ATHENS – With the moment he's been waiting almost four years on the horizon, Greece's major opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said he will oust the ruling New Democracy and form a coalition government.
