The amphibious landing of the Allied forces' troops from Britain, Canada and the United States in Normandy in 1944 allowed the liberation of France from Nazi occupation.

During the celebrations marking the 80th anniversary of the Allies' landing in Normandy, held in France, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed his hope for similar assistance from the allies to defeat another aggressor.

This information was revealed through the event's broadcast.

President Zelenskyy answered in the affirmative to the question whether he hopes for the "landing" of allies in Ukraine.

"Yes, I hope so," he said.

As is well known, on June 6, 1944, the Allied forces from Britain, Canada and the United States successfully landed in Normandy, which initiated the liberation of France from Nazi Germany's forces. Over 150,000 soldiers landed on the northwestern coast of France, making this military operation the largest amphibious landing in history.
