G-7 Leaders Pose for Family Photo in Germany

G-7 leaders posed for a family photo as the annual G-7 summit got underway in Bavaria’s Elmau, Sunday, June 26, 2022.

Leaders of the Group of Seven economies met in Germany’s Bavarian Alps on Sunday, looking to show they are united against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine while discussing ways to minimize the war’s effect on rising global food and energy costs.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said, "Germany and the U.S. will always act together when it comes to questions of Ukraine's security, and we made that clear once more."

In a pre-summit show of force, Russia launched new missile attacks Sunday on Ukraine’s two biggest cities, the capital of Kyiv and Kharkiv, even as the G-7 leaders held talks to determine new ways to isolate Moscow.

Biden announced the G-7 nations would ban new imports of Russian gold, the latest in an array of sanctions Western nations have imposed on Russia in an attempt punish it for Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, now in its fifth month.

After the three-day G-7 summit, the world leaders will travel to Madrid for a NATO summit.
