At the G7 summit in Bavaria, the prime minister vowed to continue supporting Kyiv and President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, adding: “Strategic staying power is very important.”

“It was very expensive, but what it bought in the end with the defeat of the dictators, especially Nazi Germany, it bought decades and decades of stability, a world order based on a rules-based national system and worth protecting will. that is worth defending – that brings long-term prosperity.”

Before his speech, Mr. Zelensky said he would call for additional defense systems to combat the rocket fire suffered by Kyiv and other cities in the days leading up to the summit.
