McCarthy Says He Rejected Zelensky’s Request to Address Congress

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., stops for reporters’ questions about passing a funding bill and avoiding a government shutdown, at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, Sept. 18, 2023. McCarthy is trying to win support from right-wing Republicans by including spending cuts and conservative proposals for border security and immigration.InternationalIndiaAfricaWASHINGTON, September 21 (Sputnik) – US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has turned down a request from Volodymyr Zelensky to address a joint session of the US Congress, NBC reported on Thursday. McCarthy explained his refusal by Congress’ reported lack of free time for a joint address amid a busy legislative week, adding that Zelensky had previously had an opportunity to speak before the body, the report said. Zelensky is in Washington, D.C. on Thursday to meet with US lawmakers and President Joe Biden after addressing the UN General Assembly in New York earlier this week, at which he begged for more financial and military assistance.His visit, however, comes at a time when a not-inconsiderable number of US legislators seem opposed to the continued support of Ukraine at the expense of the US taxpayers, as Kiev has proven to be extremely adept at squandering the money and military hardware it receives while at the same time failing to achieve any meaningful success on the battlefield.
