Zelensky will address the US Congress

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will address the US Congress and the White House to press for more US military aid, but the Republican Party shows little sign of listening to his increasingly desperate pleas.

It comes as Russian forces in southern Ukraine have “advanced considerably” around the village of Novopokrovka in the Zaporizhzhia region, Moscow’s occupational authorities said.

Novopokrovka lies some 20km east of Robotyne – which Kyiv said it recaptured in the summer but has since struggled to hold on to.

The Russian offensive has dragged on since the start of the military operation in February 2022, but the front has barely moved in eastern and southern Ukraine this winter.
