The Group of Seven summit in Hiroshima concluded Sunday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy making his case to world leaders for further support in Kyiv's bid to repel Russia's invasion, comparing the devastation in his country to that of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

“Russia has not used a nuclear weapon (against us). But after their bombing, when you see the burned cities of Ukraine, it is similar to the photos that I’ve seen in the atomic bomb museum in Hiroshima," Zelenskyy told a news conference through a translator after paying his respects to victims of the atomic bombing and touring the museum detailing the attack.

At Peace Memorial Park, a somber Zelenskyy joined Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in laying a bouquet of flowers tied with blue and yellow ribbons, the colors of Ukraine's flag, below the cenotaph, inscribed with the words: "Let all the souls here rest in peace; For we shall not repeat the evil."
