During a summit meeting in Bavaria on June 26, G7 leaders have agreed to announce their indefinite support of Ukraine in its defense against the Russian invasion.
“We will continue to provide financial, humanitarian, military and diplomatic support and stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes,” the draft summit resolution reads.
According to the report, this specific language is significant, as some Western countries are “getting concerned about the war dragging on,” while France and Germany indicated their tentative support for a swift negotiated settlement.
The draft resolution also explores the possibility of financing enduring Ukrainian aid efforts via tariff revenues.
The G7 summit opened in Bavaria, Germany on June 26. The United States, the UK, Canada, and Japan have already agreed to ban Russian gold imports, and expect other members of the club to follow suit. An official announcement is expected on June 28.
