Hiroshima, May 19 – The G7 leaders said in a statement at the summit in Japan that they intend, together with Ukraine, to make every effort to achieve a “comprehensive, just and sustainable” peace as soon as possible.
“Emanating from Hiroshima, the ‘symbol of peace,’ we commit that the G-7 members will mobilize all our political tools and, together with Ukraine, will make every effort to establish a comprehensive, just and sustainable peace in Ukraine as soon as possible,” the statement said.
Zelensky asked for peace – without Russia
The G7 Summit is being held in Hiroshima from May 19-21.
Vladimir Zelensky said in November 2022 that Kiev has its own “peace plan”, consisting of 10 points. Among them – ensuring nuclear, food and energy security, the exchange of “captured persons” according to the “all for all” formula, the restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity. Zelensky again indicated that Kiev insists on providing him with international security guarantees and has drafted the corresponding document. He added that Kiev wants to achieve the establishment of an international mechanism to compensate the country for losses resulting from hostilities at the expense of Russian assets.
The White House said that the G7 countries will continue to press firmly on Russia
Earlier, the Kremlin stated that there are no prerequisites for the transition of the situation in Ukraine to a peaceful course, and the absolute priority for Russia is to achieve the goals of the special operation, at the moment this is possible only by military means. They added that the Russian Federation highly appreciates the efforts of all countries that are trying to find a solution to the conflict in Ukraine in a peaceful direction, but so far this is impossible. As stated in the Kremlin, the situation in Ukraine can move in a peaceful direction, provided that the actual situation and new realities are taken into account, and all Moscow’s demands are well known.
Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24 last year. Russian President Vladimir Putin described it as a goal to “protect people who have been bullied and genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years.” And for this, according to him, it is planned to carry out the “demilitarization and demilitarization of Ukraine”, to bring to justice all the war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in Donbass.
