This will be the first time a foreign head of state delivers a speech in the Althingi, the Icelandic parliament. 

Birgir Ármannsson, Speaker of the Althingi, will chair the ceremony. Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, the President of Iceland, will address the nation before Zelensky takes the floor. Following Zelensky’s address, the Prime Minister, Katrín Jakobsdóttir, will also deliver a speech.

Iceland has condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine and continues to provide support both with humanitarian efforts and assistance to refugees fleeing the war.
