New sanctions and military support: G7 countries have sided with Ukraine

The escalation of the conflict in the east and the increase in the number of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine have provoked a reaction from foreign partners. The situation in eastern Ukraine indicates that Russia is preparing for actions that may be offensive. However, the countries of the Group of Seven (G7) have sided with Ukraine.

In addition, it resembles 2014, when Crimea was annexed, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland Pawel Jablonski stated, TV Republika reports.

In particular, he noted that such actions by Russia could be an attempt to bargain the consent of the United States to complete the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline construction. However, he is sure that the States and NATO partners cannot agree to such conditions, because the gas pipeline completion will cut off Ukraine from gas supplies.

Jablonski noted that the policy of sanctions against Russia should be continued, and even probably strengthened.

The Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the G7 countries have also called on to stop provocations on the border by Russia. They have supported Ukraine and confirmed that the G7 supports the territorial integrity and state sovereignty of Ukraine.

In particular, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius has noted that Russia takes seriously only the military support of Ukraine by its partners. The only language that the Kremlin understands is tangible arguments on land and at sea, said Linkevičius.

Context. Russia began to pull in troops to the borders of Ukraine from the beginning of April. Now there are 80,000 Russian troops on the borders with Ukraine. Of these, 40,000 are in the Crimea and the same number is on the border in the Donbas. In particular, there is evidence that the troops have become more active from the side of Transnistria.
