In his closed-door address via video-link to the gathering of leaders in the German Alps, Zelenskyy said battle conditions would make it tougher for his troops as they mount their fightback.

A war pushing past winter also risked raging further beyond, he said.

He therefore urged the G7 leaders to do their maximum to end the war by year’s end, including by intensifying sanctions against Russia, the source said.

Despite the multiple rounds of punitive measures that Western allies have unleashed on Moscow, Zelenskyy pleaded with them to “not lower the pressure and to keep sanctioning Russia massively and heavily.”
