Wives and partners of G7 leaders hold their own summit as they try out Nordic walking

The G7 leaders’ wives and partners held their own summit. It was a bit more intense than the diplomatic talks taking place in the Schloss Elmau alpine resort.

Boris Johnson and his global counterparts met to discuss the war in Ukraine. His wife Carrie, along with the spouses of other premiers, chatted in the sun as they tried their hand at Nordic walking.

Britta Ernst, the wife of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Amelie Derbaudrenghien (partner of EU Council President Michel) were also present.

Ms. Ernst, a former professional skier, took her guests on a Nordic walking tour with Miriam Neureuther (education minister in Brandenburg).

Miriam Neureuther, a former German cross-country skier and biathlete, won the Olympic silver medal in cross country skiing as well as two biathlon world championship titles. Christian Neureuther was a former World Cup alpine ski racer and competed for West Germany at three Winter Olympics.

As they began their sunny, brisk walk on Sunday, the group was seen smiling and laughing.

During this time, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zeleskyy will likely call upon G7 leaders to help his country fight Russia.

After urging allies to be partners, not observers, Mr Zelenskyy will speak via video link from Kyiv to world leaders, including Boris Johnson, Joe Biden and Joe Biden.

Monday’s session in Germany will be used by Mr Johnson to demand urgent action to get grain supplies out Ukraine. There are many countries around the world that are suffering from food shortages.
