Zelenskyy’s visit to the G7 has paid dividends – he can fly home confident in the West’s support

“Russia will feel our counteroffensive”. “Russia will feel it when our counteroffensive comes”.

The results of his whirlwind trip to allies, which ended this weekend in Hiroshima (Japan), have been positive. They have finally accepted his logic for demanding modern warplanes.

The significance of their absence is immense. They may not be there for several months or even this year. Now, the West is all in.

Again, Britain is leading the way. Rishi Sunak’s promise to train Ukrainians in the latest fighter jets has inspired others, including America.

Sky News reported just last week that the training had not yet begun.

Zelenskyy Press Conference in Full

Kyiv will regret not getting the weapons that it requested when it claimed to need them.

Zelenskyy is able to fly home with confidence, knowing that he has won the support of allies.

It is believed that his military has completed its shaping operations. They have sounded out the enemy’s weaknesses and are degrading their logistics.
