Ottawa: On the last day of the G-7 leaders’ summit in Hiroshima, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a swipe at Russia. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky also arrived during the summit and expressed hope that his country will get more support.

Russia alone is responsible for such a big war. Speaking to reporters at a news conference after attending the G-7 summit, Trudeau said, “If all of us had not provided military assistance together, it would not have been possible for Ukraine to continue to confront Russia like this.”
Trudeau also said that he will leave no stone unturned to ensure that Russia does not dare to take such a step again.
Zelensky arrived in Hiroshima on Saturday after the G7 nations announced new sanctions against Russia and invited leaders of partner countries from the Global South to join the summit.
During the three-day summit, the US confirmed that it would allow its Western partners to send us-made fighter jets to help Ukraine.
When asked how Canada would help in all this, Trudeau said that Canada is helping by training pilots. “We are in no way opposed to the assistance being extended to Ukraine in various ways.
On Sunday morning, Trudeau also met with Zelensky. Zelensky’s presence in Hiroshima has had a huge impact on all countries, he said. Representatives of some of the emerging economies in the G7 countries, such as India, Brazil and Indonesia, refrained from openly criticizing Russia.
It is worth mentioning here that some of these countries depend on Russia economically and refrain from condemning its activities.
