Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky delivered a historic speech to Britain’s House of Commons on Tuesday via video. The president began his intervention by saying that he would like to talk about “the 13 days of the war. The war that we did not start and that we did not want,” he told the parliamentarians.

“We do not want to lose what we have, what is ours, our country, Ukraine, Zelensky noted. He then added: “In the same way that once they didn’t want to lose their country… And they had to fight for Great Britain…”

Afterward, he delivered a sentence that recalled former Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s famous wartime speech: “We will fight to the end.” “We will fight in the forests, in the fields, on the coasts, in the streets,” Zelensky continued.

He also mentioned the line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “to be or not to be.” And he added: “Thirteen days ago this question about Ukraine could have been asked, but now, absolutely not. It’s obvious, we will be. It’s obvious, we will be free.”

Zelensky pleaded with British lawmakers to “strengthen sanctions” against Moscow and then called on Britain to recognize Russia “as a terrorist state.”

He reiterated his request to NATO to establish a no-fly zone over Ukraine. In that regard, he called on Britain to find a way to make “Ukrainian skies safe.”

“Do what you can, what you have to do, what the greatness of your country and your people oblige you to do,” he added.

He also criticized NATO for not delivering what the Ukrainians were “looking for”.

“I don’t want to offend anyone, but we feel that the alliances are not working, they cannot even close the skies. Therefore, it is necessary to rebuild European security from scratch,” Zelensky said.

Zelensky received a standing ovation from lawmakers at the beginning and end of his speech.
