WASHINGTON, D.C. — After hearing direct pleas for assistance from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Wednesday, West Virginia’s congressional leaders expressed continued support for Ukraine’s fight against Russia’s vicious invasion.

Zelenskyy addressed members of Congress Wednesday morning by video live-stream from Ukraine, urging lawmakers for more support, arms, economic sanctions, and a no-fly zone over his country

“Right now, the destiny of our country is being decided,” Zelenskyy said. “The destiny of our people, whether Ukrainians will be free, whether they will be able to preserve their democracy.

Against our freedom, our right to live freely, choosing our own future. Against our desire for happiness, against our national dreams.”
