Over 20 far-right Austrian lawmakers left the Parliament on Thursday during a virtual speech by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. According to the BBC, the MPs from the Freedom Party of Austria (FPO) argued that Zelenskyy's address violated Austria's "permanent neutrality" status. The pro-Russia party's politicians, who walked out of the Lower House, even warned of some sort of protest before the speech.
