G7 leaders condemn Russia’s ‘brutal’ war on Ukraine, call for ‘lasting peace’


The G7 has condemned Russia’s “brutal” war on its neighbour Ukraine “in the strongest possible terms”, calling it a “serious violation of international law”, in its final communique from this week’s summit.

As part of the statement, the world leaders called for “just and lasting peace” and recommitted their intention to provide Ukraine with military, financial, and humanitarian support.
The G7 leaders said in the statement, “We once again condemn in the strongest possible terms the war of aggression by Russia against Ukraine, which constitutes a serious violation of international law, including the UN Charter.

“Russia’s brutal war of aggression represents a threat to the whole world in breach of fundamental norms, rules, and principles of the international community. “We reaffirm our unwavering support for Ukraine for as long as it takes to bring a comprehensive, just, and lasting peace.

“We issued the G7 leaders’ statement on Ukraine, and with the clear intention and concrete actions set forth in it, we commit to intensifying our diplomatic, financial, humanitarian, and military support for Ukraine, to increasing the costs to Russia and those supporting its war efforts, and to continuing to counter the negative impacts of the war on the rest of the world, particularly on the most vulnerable people.”
