G7 leaders support sanctions against Russia

G7 states note the need to maintain dialogue with Russia but link the duration of sanctions to Moscow`s implementation of Minsk agreements, according to G7 Leaders` Declaration signed in Japan May 27.
”The duration of sanctions is clearly linked to Russia`s complete implementation of the Minsk agreements and respect for Ukraine`s sovereignty. Sanctions can be rolled back when Russia meets these commitments,” the declaration reads.
It is also noted that further restrictive measures can be taken against Russia ”should its actions so require.”
Besides, the G7 leaders say that they ”recognize the importance of maintaining dialogue with Russia in order to ensure it abides by the commitments it has made as well as international law and to reach a comprehensive, sustainable and peaceful solution to the crisis.”
