Zelensky to plead case to high-level NATO summit

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has been invited to address a special NATO summit Thursday discussing the Russian invasion of his country by video link, a NATO official says.

“This will be an opportunity for allied leaders to hear directly from President Zelensky about the dire situation facing the people of Ukraine because of Russia’s aggression,” the official says.

Zelensky’s spokesman Serhiy Nykyforov confirms that the Ukraine leader would be taking part in the summit and addressing it.

Zelensky will seek help in ending the Russian invasion, Interfax-Ukraine quotes the spokesman as saying.

“This could be in several forms. Close airspace, provide Ukraine with powerful air defense systems and aviation,” he says.
