(FOX NEWS) – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in an address to Congress Wednesday, pleaded with the United States to “do more” by implementing a no-fly zone, providing additional aircraft and air defense systems, and creating a new security alliance.

Zelenskyy, speaking to U.S. lawmakers from Kyiv, where he has chosen to remain even as Russian forces move on the city, thanked President Biden for his “personal involvement” and “sincere commitment to the defense of Ukraine,” and the United States for the aid it has provided.

“However, now it is true in the darkest time for our country, for the whole Europe, I call on you to do more,” Zelenskyy said.

He also issued a direct message to President Biden.

“I’m addressing the President Biden,” Zelenskyy said. “You, the leader of your nation, I wish you to be the leader of the world.”

He added: “Being the leader of the world means being the leader of peace.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, friends, Americans, in your great history, you have pages that would allow you to understand Ukrainians understand us right now, when we need you right now,” he said. “Remember Pearl Harbor, terrible morning of December 7, 1941, when your sky was black from the plains attacking you. Just remember it.”

Zelenskyy went on to invoke Sept. 11, 2001, calling it a “terrible day” when “independent territories” were turned into “battlefields,” and “when innocent people were attacked—attacked from the air.”
