Zelenskyy's pivot from Trump impeachment character to heroic figure provides rare lawmaker unity

Date:



WASHINGTON – Two years ago, Volodymyr Zelenskyy was the central character in one of Capitol Hill’s most divisive chapters: the first impeachment of Donald Trump, over charges he pressured the Ukrainian president to perform a political favor.

On Wednesday, Zelenskyy will address a bipartisan throng of House and Senate lawmakers as a unifying figure. In a Congress where both parties agree on little, the Ukraine president has become a rallying figure for Democrats and Republicans as he petitions the U.S. for aid to help his undermanned force fend off a brutal Russian invasion.
