G7 nations pledge to keep anti-Russian sanctions i

Sanctions imposed against Russia are to stay in place until the full implementation of the Minsk agreements, G7 leaders have ruled at the summit in Japan, urging Russia to “respect Ukraine’s authority.” The announcement comes after EU Council President Donald Tusk expressed the same stance linking the potential lifting of the sanctions to the Minsk deal, which was reached back in 2015 between Kiev and representatives of the eastern regions and endorsed by the leaders of Russia, France, and Germany. Russia has repeatedly stated that it is not a side to the conflict in Ukraine, urging Kiev to engage in dialogue with the self-proclaimed republics. Moscow also noted that the West’s stance would only encourage Kiev to further sabotage the Minsk package, which stipulated a full ceasefire in eastern Ukraine. The EU imposed sanctions on Moscow in July 2014 after its reunification with Crimea and amid conflict in eastern Ukraine and extended them twice in 2015.
The group consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States agreed sanctions imposed against Russia should be kept in place, UK Prime Minister David Cameron announced at a conference in Japan. Earlier, chief of the Council of Europe Donald Tusk said Brussels wants to extend the EU’s anti-Russian sanctions beyond their expiration date of July 31.
