President Zelensky will give speech to Portuguese parliament next week

Written By Lara Silva

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will make a speech via video call to the Portuguese parliament on April 21. The speech will happen at 3 pm and the President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa will be present.

The government approved last week an invite to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to make a speech to the Portuguese parliament. The Party of the People, Animals, and Nature (PAN) proposed the invite on March 16 and it has been accepted by most Portuguese parties. However, the Portuguese Communist Party (PCP) voted against the proposal.

The ambassador of Ukraine in Portugal, Inna Ohnivets told CNN that the Portuguese Communist Party (PCP) is perpetuating a campaign of Russian misinformation, arguing the party’s position “has always been a position of Russian support in the last eight years of the international conflict between Ukraine and Russia”.

Zelensky has made speeches to parliaments all over the world. The president usually references events and national symbols of each country, which could occur in his speech next week.
