Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will address the legislators of Mexico by video on April 20, Reuters reported exclusively, referring to two Mexican sources.

A parliamentary group promoting friendship between Mexico and Ukraine asked Zelenskyy to speak during a meeting of the Chamber of Deputies.

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has urged the Mexican government to stand with Ukraine and Europe in Russia’s war, as has the U.S. ambassador to Mexico.

Mexico, however, chafed at "taking orders" from other countries, especially from the U.S.

Despite condemning the full-scale invasion, Mexico has refused to sanction Russia. The country remains neutral and has slammed NATO's military support of Ukraine, calling it "immoral."

Attempts to shift public opinion on the issue of Russia's armed aggression against Ukraine have caused some notable disputes in Mexico’s Congress.
