Cathy Newman: “President Biden has compared Ukraine’s battle against Russian tyranny to the fight for freedom on D-Day – at a special event in Normandy to mark the 80th anniversary.

Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy joined other world leaders, as they paid tribute to the allied troops who stormed the Normandy beaches in June 1944, beginning the campaign to liberate north western Europe from German occupation.
