Zelensky proposed five steps to G7 leaders to reduce the damage caused by the war

Vladimir Zelensky spoke with G7 leaders online. The President announced this on his Telegram channel. Also, the main theses of the head of state, voiced at the videoconference, were published on the website of the president.

“During an address to the participants of the G7 summit, he proposed five concrete steps that could be useful for Ukraine, all of Europe and, what is important, to reduce the colossal costs of all countries because of this Russian war,” Zelensky wrote.

The first is effective security guarantees for Ukraine. The second is modern missile defense and the supply of sufficient weapons. The third is the resumption of agricultural exports. Fourth, the recognition of Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism, as well as the radical restriction of its oil revenues and the confiscation of all frozen and seized assets. The fifth is the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine.

The President explained that security guarantees for Ukraine in the future will exclude the possibility of conflicts like Russian aggression.

Ukraine needs modern and effective missile defense systems because Russia is stepping up rocket attacks on cities further from the front. The civilian population needs to be provided with basic security so that they can return to work.

“The head of state stressed that the return of people to work will allow launching economic processes in settlements, because today our country's monthly budget deficit is $ 5 billion . United States,” the president's website says.

Zelensky called for further strengthening of sanctions against Russia, including limiting the price of oil exported by the aggressor.

The President asked the leaders of the G7 countries to encourage their companies to consider Ukraine as an alternative to the Russian direction. According to the President, after the end of the war, Ukraine will have much better access to the global market compared to the aggressor country. In addition, Ukraine has duty-free access to the markets of leading democratic countries.

The President thanked for defense and financial assistance, a consistent position on sanctions.

The summit of G7 leaders is being held in Elmau Castle in Germany. It is attended by US President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel.
