Zelensky Will Attend the G7, Seeking Arms and Aid, Officials Say

JAPAN (NYT) – President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine is scheduled to appear at the Group of 7 summit in Hiroshima, Japan, this weekend, to seek further commitments for more arms and aid from the world’s wealthiest democracies.

His participation will follow a visit to Saudi Arabia, where Mr. Zelensky arrived on Friday to join a summit of Arab leaders, his latest stop on a flurry of trips outside of Ukraine to shore up support ahead of a widely anticipated Ukrainian counteroffensive.

It was not immediately clear whether Mr. Zelensky would go to Japan in person or if he would attend the G7 events virtually. Several officials told The New York Times that the Ukrainian leader would travel to Japan, but did not say when he would arrive.

Details of Mr. Zelensky’s travel are typically closely guarded for security reasons. While the head of Ukraine’s national security and defense council initially confirmed on Friday morning that the Ukrainian leader would participate in the meeting in person, the council later said in a statement that Mr. Zelensky would take part online.

President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen who reach in Japan for attending G7 Summit tweeted about war and peace. What happened in Hiroshima continues to haunt humanity.

Here we remember the terrible cost of war.

And we are reminded of our duty to preserve peace.
