WASHINGTON (AA) – The leaders of the US, European nations, Canada and Japan reiterated their commitment to continue to provide security, economic and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine during a video call Tuesday, according to the White House.

In a news conference ahead of President Joe Biden’s trip to the state of New Hampshire, spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Biden convened the call to discuss ongoing efforts to support Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression.

“The leaders affirm their solidarity with Ukrainian people and condemn the humanitarian suffering caused by Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified invasion,” said Psaki.

They also discussed diplomatic engagements and efforts to continue to impose severe economic costs to hold Russia accountable as well as continuing close coordination to work with the G7, EU and NATO.

The leaders include French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Polish President Andrzej Duda, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, President of the European Council Charles Michel, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

Russia’s war on Ukraine, which began Feb. 24, has led to thousands of deaths, millions being displaced and a broad range of sanctions on Moscow, in particular by the EU and the US.​​​​​​​

It has also spurred an exodus of global firms from Russia, ranging from technology to automotive, energy, retail and various others sectors.​​​​​​​
