The key topics of his negotiations will include further increasing Ukraine’s defense support, accelerating the supply of F-16 fighter jets, and strengthening Ukrainian air defense systems.

“Whether online or physically present, President Zelenskyy will be there. Without a doubt. The G7 are our main partners. We will discuss with them the key topics of our relations, including dialogues in bilateral formats with G7 countries,” said the President’s spokesperson during a television broadcast.

According to Nykyforov, President Zelenskyy intends to discuss developing a coalition of Western fighter jets, and steps to accelerate the supply of F-16s with US representatives attending the summit in Italy.

Another key topic will be strengthening Ukrainian air defense with additional systems and missiles. “This is the most sensitive issue for our cities and front lines. And within the G7 framework, we expect key decisions,” said Nykyforov.
