Sanctions against Russia and support for Ukraine: results of G7 Summit

Jun 29, 2022

The war in Ukraine was at the top of the agenda of the G7 Summit, held on June 26-28 in Germany.

During the G7 Summit, countries expressed their commitment to Ukraine. The states agreed to help the war-torn country by providing military, humanitarian and diplomatic support.


It was stated by Andriy Yermak, head of the Ukrainian Presidential Office, during a briefing on June 28.

“The G7's unprecedented statement of support for Ukraine demonstrates two things: the summit participants have a clear vision of the connection between the war in Ukraine and crisis phenomena in other regions of the planet; the second is that the democratic world has made and will make every effort to support Ukraine and punish Russia for its aggression and minimize the global consequences of this war. The key theses of the world leadership manifesto: the G7 will provide financial, humanitarian, military and diplomatic support to Ukraine as long as necessary,” Yermak said.

The head of the Presidential Office noted that world leaders demanded that Russia immediately withdraw its troops from Ukraine.

“G7 members demand from Russia to immediately and unconditionally cease all hostilities and withdraw its troops from all Ukrainian territories within its internationally recognized borders. Decisions on future peace agreements must remain with Ukraine. G7 countries will support and increase sanctions pressure on Russia. Also, these countries support the international plan for Ukraine's reconstruction,” Yermak added.

G7 leaders condemned the missile attack on the shopping center in Kremenchuk. They said that all those responsible, including Russian president Vladimir Putin, should be held accountable. The G7 leaders noted that they join Ukraine in mourning the innocent victims of the brutal and heinous attack.

“We will not rest until Russia ends its cruel and senseless war on Ukraine,” stressed the G7 leaders.
