Ukraine peace summit: US announces $1.5B of aid as Russia, China absent from talks

From Global News.

World leaders are gathering in Switzerland this weekend for a summit aimed at pressuring Russia to end its war in Ukraine, but the absence of Moscow’s powerful allies — such as China — is raising questions about its potential impact.

U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris and the leaders of the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan are among those who joined Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy at the summit which began on Saturday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also met with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni in the morning, and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the G7 summit in Italy the day before, drawing attention worldwide given recent political tension between these leaders.

Global’s Mackenzie Gray has the details.
