Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has asked the G7 countries to send additional anti-aircraft fire.
He did so on Monday via a live connection with the summit that is being held these days in Schloss Elmau in southern Germany, reports a European official who wishes to remain anonymous.
More heavy weapons weren’t the only thing on Zelensky’s wish list. He also argued for tougher sanctions against Russia and wanted more security guarantees from the G7 leaders. The Ukrainian president also asked for help with grain exports.
Its export is made virtually impossible by the Russians.
The G7, the major industrialized countries of the world, will discuss the consequences of the war in Ukraine until Tuesday. In addition to the G7 leaders, EU leaders and several other government leaders are also present.
