In his virtual address on March 16, President Volodymyr Zelensky reiterated his plea for a no-fly zone over Ukraine to protect the lives of Ukrainian people during "the darkest time" for his country.

"If this is too much to ask, we offer an alternative," Zelensky said, asking Washington to provide the fighter jets to Ukraine.

Zelensky called on the U.S. to do more, starting from imposing new sanctions to making sure that Russia doesn't receive "a single penny (from American companies) that they use to destroy the people of Ukraine."

Zelensky emphasized that all ports in the U.S. should be closed for Russian goods.

"Peace is more important than income," Zelensky said.

After showing a graphic video montage of Russia's attacks on Ukraine, Zelensky ended the speech with a few remarks made in English.

"Today the Ukrainian people are defending not only Ukraine. We are fighting for the values of Europe and the world, sacrificing our lives in the name of the future. That’s why today the American people are helping not just Ukraine, but the world to keep the planet alive, to keep justice in history."

At the end, Zelensky addressed U.S. President Joseph Biden.

"As the leader of my nation I’m addressing President Biden. You’re the leader of the nation. I wish you to be the leader of the world. Being the leader of the world means to be the leader of peace. Thank you. Slava Ukrayini."
