An expectation that Volodymyr Zelenskyy will use his address to call for more lethal aid.

The Ukrainian President will be speaking to Parliament via video link this morning, as New Zealand becomes the latest Western country to receive him.

And with Ukraine making significant ground in the country's east in recent months, he'll likely expect New Zealand to send more weapons.

Democracy Project geopolitical analyst Geoffrey Miller told Roman Travers we haven't sent lethal aid to Ukraine since April's $7.5 million dollars to the UK to buy on our behalf.

He says with key supporters like the EU and the US pouring money into the kitty, he expects Zelenskyy to call for us to do the same.
