The war in Ukraine again dominated the Group of Seven summit in the Bavarian Alps as leaders met for a second day of talks. President Volodymyr Zelenskiy spoke to them by video link from Kyiv and said he wants the war to be over by the end of the year, according to officials familiar with his remarks.

The club of rich nations adopted a declaration pledging to support Zelenskiy and his government “for as long as it takes.” President Joe Biden also told his Ukrainian counterpart that the US will supply his armed forces with an advanced surface-to-air missile defense system.
