The Ukrainian President has praised Irish support for his country, thanking people here for not staying neutral in the face of the war.

Addressing a joint sitting of the Oireachtas, Volodomyr Zelensky said Russia doesn't deserve to be in the circle of civilised countries.

He asked the Irish Government to go beyond its support to date to push for EU membership for Ukraine and asked Ireland to go further with sanctions against Russia.

President Zelensky thanked Irish people for the support they have shown to the people of Ukraine;

"Since the very first days you are supporting good, you are supporting Ukraine and this is a fact. You did not doubt starting to help us, you began doing this right away."

Taoiseach Micheál Martin said Ireland will continue to stand by Ukraine throughout the war;

"To those who have arrived here from Ukraine, I hope you find in Ireland safe harbour and friendship for as long as you need it."
