Andriy Yermak discussed support for Ukraine's Peace Formula with the ambassadors of the G7 and the EU

As part of the regular dialogue, Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak had a meeting with the ambassadors of the G7 countries and the Head of the Delegation of the European Union.

Andriy Yermak congratulated the representative of Japan on the beginning of Tokyo's G7 Presidency and expressed hope for continued active cooperation with the G7 countries.

The Head of the President's Office briefed the interlocutors on the situation on the frontline and expressed gratitude to the G7 states for the historic decisions approved the day before to provide Ukraine with much-needed heavy armored vehicles.

In the context of the approaching anniversary of the beginning of Russia's full-scale aggression against our country, the participants of the meeting coordinated joint actions of the G7 countries and Ukraine for the near future.

In particular, according to the Head of the President's Office, a special session of the UN General Assembly may be held by that date to consider a resolution in support of the Peace Formula proposed by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during his speech at the recent G19 Summit in Indonesia.

"It is important for this document to be adopted by the maximum possible number of votes. Therefore, Ukraine counts on the support of the G7 countries in its adoption and assistance in mobilizing support from other countries," Andriy Yermak emphasized.

The parties also discussed preparations for the summit of the G7 and Ukraine.

In addition, the interlocutors paid attention to analyzing the effectiveness of compliance with the sanctions restrictions imposed on the aggressor state and agreeing on further joint actions in this area.

The participants of the meeting discussed possible new formats for informing the international community, including ambassadors and representatives of partner countries, about the latest developments of the Yermak-McFaul expert group on sanctions against Russia.

During the meeting, the Head of the Presidential Office introduced his new deputy, Oleksiy Kuleba, who is responsible for regional policy.

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Ukraine Kuninori Matsuda thanked Andriy Yermak for informing about the security situation in Ukraine and the developments in strengthening the sanctions pressure.

He assured that the G7 countries would continue to support Ukraine on its path to victory.
