President Volodymyr Zelensky has addressed the House of Commons and pledged to keep on fighting against Russia.
Two weeks after the invasion of Ukraine began, Zelensky quoted William Shakespeare, thanked Boris Johnson and called for an increase in sanctions.
The leader spoke virtually from Kyiv in Ukraine – the first time a foreign leader has addressed MPs in the chamber.
Meanwhile, the US and UK are banning Russian oil and the European Union is ending its reliance on Russian gas as countries harden their response to the invasion of Ukraine.
US President Joe Biden said the move targeted “the main artery of Russia’s economy”.
He spoke soon after the European Commission said it would reduce EU demand for Russian gas by two-thirds, the EU gets 40% of its gas from Russia. END.
