Watch Live: Zelensky Received Germany’s Prestigious Charlemagne Prize

Watch live as Volodymyr Zelensky receives Germany’s prestigious Charlemagne Prize at a ceremony in Aachen on Sunday, May 14.

The Ukrainian president receives the award as part of his trip in which he secured a new defense aid package.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has announced his country will support Ukraine “as long as it is necessary” and pledged 2.7 billion euros (£2.4 billion) worth of weapons.

While visiting Berlin, Zelensky vowed that kyiv and Western supporters could make a Russian defeat in the war in Ukraine “irreversible” and thanked Germany for being a “true friend.”

Germany is Europe’s largest economy but faced criticism when Russia first invaded Ukraine in 2022 for what critics called a slow response.

Since then, it has become one of the largest providers of financial and military aid to Ukraine.
