EThis meeting is the first under the Italian presidency of heads of State and Government of the G7 member countries (United States, Japan, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada).

The summit was called “on the occasion of the second anniversary of the Russian aggression against Ukraine”, according to a statement from the Italian Government, at a time when Kyiv recognizes that it is experiencing an “extremely difficult” situation for its forces, deprived of ammunition and of American aid.

Ukraine today reported dozens of Russian attacks on the eastern and southern fronts, following the capture on Saturday by Moscow forces of the city of Avdiivka, in the Donetsk region.

As for US aid — which is crucial to the war effort but blocked by the US Congress — Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Chmygal today expressed confidence that it will eventually arrive.

The G7 decided, in July 2023, to sign bilateral security contracts with Ukraine, which has sought this type of commitments with countries such as Germany, France or Poland.

These security agreements involve the granting of military equipment, interoperable with NATO, as well as the training of Ukrainian forces and the strengthening of Ukraine’s defense industry.
