“We do not recognize the change in the borders that Russia has sought to impose through aggression,” the statement said at the conclusion of the G7 Foreign Ministers’ Summit, which concluded in Germany on Saturday, May 14, 2022. German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbach reiterated this position at the final press conference and noted that the attitude of the international community at this time would be decisive for the future. “What we do now or not will define our relationships in the future,” he said.
“It was a G7 mob, and innocent people are dying in Ukraine like never before,” Barbach said. The German minister said the G7 would establish a mechanism to unleash the Russian campaign, especially where there is “fertile soil”. Baerbock also noted the effects of the war on grain prices, saying Russia seems determined to expand the war to the rest of the world by turning it into a war for food.
Expand the barriers
The G7 statement promises to “extend sanctions” against Russia, targeting “sectors particularly dependent on Russia” and calling on China not to “undermine” these punitive measures.
Therefore, the world’s seven largest industrial powers want to “accelerate their efforts” to “end their dependence on Russian energy”, according to a final statement issued after the meeting in northern Germany. In addition, they urge China not to support Russia in its attack on Ukraine.
