Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak met with the ambassadors of the G7 countries.
He informed the heads of diplomatic missions about the results of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's visit to the frontline positions of the Ukrainian troops. Emphasizing that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have a high morale and motivation, Andriy Yermak drew attention to the quantitative advantage of the Russian aggressor in armaments and military equipment. He called on the ambassadors of the G7 countries to assist in speeding up the supply of the necessary weapons by the governments of their countries for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This should speed up Ukraine's victory in this brutal, unprovoked war unleashed by Russia.
"We have a clear understanding that victory for us means the full restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity," said the Head of the President's Office.
He suggested intensifying work to raise awareness of partners about the defense needs of our country, in particular by holding regular briefings for military experts of interested countries, organizing visits of journalists to the front and more.
During the meeting the issue of post-war reconstruction of our state was discussed. Andriy Yermak informed about the initiative of Volodymyr Zelenskyy, which envisages taking patronage over individual cities or regions of Ukraine by partner countries with ensuring full control over the use of financial resources. The G7 countries were invited to actively participate in this initiative.
Andriy Yermak informed about the results of the expert group's work on making recommendations on imposing sanctions against the aggressor, as well as on the state of formation of two more advisory groups - on post-war security guarantees for Ukraine and on reparations.
The importance of ensuring progress on Ukraine's path to membership in the European Union was emphasized. The most important at this stage should be the decision of EU leaders at the European Council session on June 24 to grant Ukraine candidate status.
The participants of the meeting exchanged views on ways to restore full-fledged exports of Ukrainian grain, in particular through the Black Sea ports of our country.
The parties agreed on the importance of holding regular briefings for G7 ambassadors, in particular with the participation of senior government officials, in order to exchange views on topical issues of domestic and foreign policy agenda.
