HIROSHIMA, Japan -- Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will attend the Group of Seven summit in the western Japanese city of Hiroshima in person, officials said Friday, as leaders of the world's rich democracies discussed ways to increase support for the war-ravaged nation.

Zelenskyy's appearance in the first city to suffer an atomic bombing will be a boost for G-7 leaders, who are calling on Russia to refrain from using or brandishing nuclear weapons in its war against Ukraine. Zelenskyy is expected to attend meetings on Sunday.
