Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will address Parliament on Friday afternoon to rally support for continued help to repel Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Zelenskyy arrived in Ottawa Thursday night and has a slate of events planned for Friday, including a parliamentary address.

CBC’s Rosemary Barton and David Cochrane will host a special broadcast live from the House of Commons foyer beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET.

You can watch the special on CBC News Network and stream it on CBCNews.ca, CBC Gem, the CBC News App and the CBC News YouTube channel.

You can also watch CBC News Network for live continuing coverage of Zelenskyy’s entire Canadian visit.

Zelenskyy’s visit to Canada comes after trips to Washington D.C. on Thursday and the United Nations in New York earlier in the week.

Zelenskyy addressed Parliament by Zoom in March, 2022. His address on Friday will make him one of only a few foreign leaders to address Canada’s Parliament twice.

The others include former U.K. prime ministers Margaret Thatcher and Anthony Eden and former U.S. presidents Ronald Reagan and Dwight D. Eisenhower.
