Since Russia’s President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine, G7 partners have unwaveringly supported Ukraine’s democracy and sovereignty. 

The seven countries (the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan) and the European Union have condemned Russia's attacks, toured war-torn neighborhoods with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and sent military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

“The United States, together with our allies and partners around the world, will continue to stand with the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their sovereignty and territorial integrity and their freedom.”

Like Biden, the other G7 leaders stand with Ukraine, and their countries peoples support Ukrainians.

“We support Ukraine in its defense struggle … Putin should not and must not expect us to let up.”
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz

In his June 2022 visit to Kyiv, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz pledged robust aid to Zelenskyy and stated his support for Ukraine’s future membership in the European Union, which will be an important step for Ukraine.   

The German people continue their generous donations to Ukrainians harmed by Russias attacks.

U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak

During his January 2024 visit to Kyiv, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak underscored “an unshakeable hundred-year partnership between Ukraine and the U.K.”

“The Ukrainian people are defending the values of freedom and democracy on which our civilization is based, and the very foundations of international law. … We have always stood by Ukraine, and that is what we will continue to do.”
Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni

Italian Prime Minister Georgia Meloni was moved by the devastation she saw when visiting Ukraine in February 2023. She said Italy would help Ukraine meet this "barbarism" by joining in the reconstruction of the Transfiguration Cathedral, the largest church in Odesa, and of other war-damaged cultural sites.

Many Italians send items through their churches or charities to the people of Ukraine.
