The leaders of the G7 countries have again called on Russia to completely withdraw its troops from Ukraine.
“Russia has started this war and can end it,” said a statement adopted Friday by heads of state and government at a summit in Hiroshima.
“We emphasize that a just peace cannot be achieved without the full and unconditional withdrawal of Russian troops and military equipment, and this must be included in any call for peace,” the G7 statement said.
In a statement released from the site of the first atomic bomb used in the war in 1945, Russia warned that even the threat of using a nuclear weapon was unacceptable.
The leaders of the G7 countries also pledged to continue supporting Ukraine, including by providing military support. However, the statement did not mention specific details of support for Ukraine, such as the country’s recent repeated requests for advanced Western fighter jets.
