Most far-right, far-left MPs boycott Zelensky German parliament speech

Far-right and far-left parties in the German parliament on Tuesday failed to show up for a speech by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who is in Berlin to plead for more support for Ukraine.

The far-left Sahra Wagenknecht Alliance (BSW) was completely absent from the event, while the leaders of the far-right AfD said in a statement that “we refuse to listen to a speaker wearing camouflage fatigues”.
