President Biden told Zelensky on Monday that the United States intends to provide Kyiv with advanced medium- and long-range air defense capabilities, national security adviser Jake Sullivan said. Washington is “in the process of finalizing a package” that will also include other items of “urgent need, including ammunition for artillery and counter-battery radar systems,” Sullivan said, according to a pool report.
Meeting in Germany’s Bavarian Alps, leaders from the Group of Seven, the world’s wealthiest democracies, pledged to “stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes” — after Zelensky, addressing the summit by video link, asked the group for more heavy weapons to force a Russian retreat before winter. The Ukrainian leader requested modern antiaircraft systems and more-powerful arms to launch counterattacks. The G-7 leaders were also “very close” to an agreement on a global price cap for Russian oil shipments — a measure designed to disrupt a key source of funding for Russia’s war in Ukraine, a senior U.S. official said.
