Munich prepares to land Air Force One

The most powerful man in the world is approaching: According to the White House, US President Biden Schlos is heading to the G7 summit in Elma. There, the protests against the summit of the seven major industrialized nations were much smaller than expected.

US President Joe Biden has left for the G7 summit in Bavaria. The White House has announced that Air Force One will land in Munich in the evening. From there, Biden flies to the Slox Elma, the summit of the seven leading Western industrialized nations, starting Sunday. Biden is scheduled to hold bilateral talks with President Olaf Scholes ahead of the summit.

The G7 summit in Bavaria runs until Tuesday. Before Biden returns to Washington, he will attend the NATO summit in the Spanish capital, Madrid, on Wednesday.

Thousands of people protested against G7 policies in Munich in the afternoon. According to police, about 4,000 people took part in the rally and the ensuing demonstration under the slogan “Justice is different”. According to the organizers, there were about 6000 people.

Police said there were no casualties. However, the maximum number of 6000 people came significantly less than what the organizers announced. Expect up to 20,000 participants. The protests were significantly smaller than the G7 summit in Schloss Elmau in 2015, with about 35,000 people coming to Munich for the central demonstration.

In addition to Germany and the United States, the G7 includes Canada, Great Britain, France, Italy and Japan. The federal government is currently chairing the committee. The focus of the G7 and NATO summits will be on the Russian attack on Ukraine. Just last Thursday, the United States announced $ 450 million (approximately 8 428 million) in additional arms supplies to Ukraine. The U.S. government says it has pledged or already provided about $ 6.1 billion (8 5.8 billion) worth of weapons and equipment to Ukraine since the war began four months ago.
