They also backed the Normandy negotiation process.

They also called on Russia and illegal armed formations to commit to a ceasefire.

"I am grateful to the leaders of Great Britain, Germany, Canada, Italy, the United States, France, Japan, and the EU for their unwavering support for the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders and for calling on the aggressor to withdraw troops from our eastern borders and from Crimea. Crimea is Ukraine," Zelensky said.
