Zelensky yesterday addressed the Eu- ropean Parliament via video link as the Russian military advanced on Kyiv with a huge convoy of armoured vehicles, tanks and other military equipment spanning more than 60km, according to new satel- lite images. Zelensky later said he had asked German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to help close the skies over Ukraine to halt the shelling of civilians by Russia. The Ukrainian delegation present at the European Parliament received a rapturous round of applause as the Parliament Pres- ident Roberta Metsola lauded the Ukrain- ian people for "reminding Europe that our way of life is worth defending". Metsola said the European Parliament will "work towards the goal" of Ukrainian accession to the EU and said the EU will seek to ban any Russian representatives from entering the parliament due to Rus- sia's invasion of Ukraine.
