G-7 leaders take actions to showcase continued support for Ukraine

FASANO, Italy - President Biden and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, unveiled a range of measures here Thursday meant to bolster support for Ukraine as the war with Russia slogs on, attempting to showcase that broad international support continues despite the war's uncertain course.

Biden and Zelensky signed a 10-year security agreement hours after leaders of the Group of Seven major democracies announced a plan to tap frozen Russian assets and provide Ukraine with $50 billion in additional funds. It all came a day after the United States also announced new sanctions on individuals and companies helping Russia's war effort.

"We've taken three major steps at the G-7 that collectively show Putin he cannot wait us out," Biden told reporters as he appeared with Zelensky at the Italian hotel villa where he is staying. "You cannot divide us. And we'll be with Ukraine until they prevail in this war."
