Iceland is fully participating in the global sanctions against Russia and supports the humanitarian efforts of the United Nations and other governing bodies in Europe and they have welcomed Ukrainian refugees to the country. Furthermore, Iceland has helped facilitate the transport of equipment in support of Ukrainian defense. Iceland will continue to find ways to support Ukraine to the best of their abilities," is written in an announcement from the Icelandic Parliament.

Zelensky has addressed a number of parliaments since the Russian army invaded his country on February 24th this year. He has been trying to get more support for Ukraine because of the war, and  he has called for added sanctions against the Russians.

He has addressed the parliaments of the other Scandinavian countries as well as the British parliament and the US Congress in these three months as well as the United Nations Security Council and the European Parliament.  He also gave a speech at the Grammy's a month ago.
