Austria's far right walks out of Zelensky speech - VIDEO

World A- A A+
More than 20 far-right Austrian MPs walked out of parliament during a speech by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Ednews informs via BBC News that the politicians from the Freedom Party (FPÖ) argued Mr Zelensky's speech violated Austria's neutrality. They warned ahead of the speech they would hold some form of protest against the address. Austria has previously said it cannot help Ukraine's defence militarily, but does support Kyiv politically. In a video address, Mr Zelensky thanked Austria for its humanitarian assistance and help clearing land mines. He was speaking on the 400th day of Russian invasion. He also invited MPs to travel to Ukraine for themselves and see the destruction caused.
