UPGRADE DAY

The countries of the G7 forum “will never recognize the alleged annexations” of Ukrainian territories by Russia, their foreign ministers said on Friday, promising new sanctions against Moscow.

“We unanimously and strongly condemn Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine and Russia's continued violation of Ukraine's sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence”, they added.

“President Putin's efforts to integrate Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia regions into the territory of the Russian Federation are further evidence of Russia's blatant disregard for international law,” they continued.

 “And they are another example of Russia's unacceptable violations of Ukraine's sovereignty, the Charter of the United Nations and the principles and commitments jointly agreed in the Helsinki Final Act and the Charter of Paris,” they said.
