Interpreter translating Zelensky's address to European Parliament breaks down crying
On Tuesday, between sniffles and tears, the official Ukrainian translator held back tears while translating President Volodymyr Zelensky's emotional speech to the European Parliament in a desperate plea to expedite Ukraine's application to the EU.
"We are fighting just for our land and for our freedom," the unidentified translator said repeating Zelensky's words. "We have a desire to see our children alive. I think it's a fair one." The video of the translator tearing up is going viral on social media.
"We are fighting for our rights, for our freedoms, for our life and now we are fighting for survival. This is the highest of our motivation but we are fighting also to be equal members of Europe," the translator repeated from Zelensky.
"Nobody is going to break us we are strong, we are Ukrainians."
