The First Lady was invited as a guest of honor to State of the Union, a key event for the European Union.

"Rada to welcome First Lady Elena Zelenskaya, who will be my guest of honor tomorrow at the State of the Union address. The courage of the Ukrainians dissolved and inspired the world. Europe will be by your side with every step along the way. Together we will be stronger,” von der Leyen wrote on her Twitter.

State of the European Union – the annual keynote speech of the President or President of the European Commission in the European Parliament at the opening of the September session, in which the results of the past year are summed up and priorities for the next year are determined. After the speech, plenary debates take place.

This is the first precedent when a representative of Ukraine was invited to the event.
