Hi there,

This week Democracy Now! is bringing you live, on-the-ground coverage of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where you’ll hear the voices and analysis you won’t get anywhere else. In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $15 donation is worth $30 today. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.

President Volodymyr Zelensky Visits U.K. Ahead of Expected Russian Offensive

HeadlineFeb 08, 2023

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is in Britain on a rare trip abroad, where he is meeting with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and King Charles. Zelensky will also address the U.K. Parliament. Britain, which announced new sanctions against Russia today, has provided military equipment and training to Ukraine in its efforts to counter Russia’s invasion. Zelensky’s visit comes as Russia seems poised to launch a major offensive in the east and as the war approaches its one-year mark.

Meanwhile, President Biden is expected to travel to Poland for the February 24 anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
