  • Wartime visit to US: 'In the darkest hour of the war', Biden and Zelensky display real 'chemistry'

    At a time of grave consequence, a wartime leader crossed the Atlantic to arrive at a White House decked in holiday decor to consult with the American president about a war in Europe. The moment was Dec. 22, 1941, as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill landed near Washington to meet with President Franklin D. Roosevelt just weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Almost 81 years later to the day, the pageantry of that trip was echoed on Wednesday as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrived for a surprise visit with President Joe Biden and an address to Congress. President Zelenskiy told the US Congress that aid to Ukraine was an investment in democracy and "not charity" as he invoked American battles against the Nazis in World War Two to press for more assistance for his country's war effort. For more on the wartime president's daring trip to Washington, FRANCE 24 is joined by Political Analyst Alexandra Filippenko from Vilnius, Lithuania.
