Earlier, we reported that during that meeting in London, ministers of Foreign Affairs and Development of G7 member countries paid special attention to the situation in Ukraine and its relations with Russia. 

It took the delegates an hour and a half to discuss this topic, as well as the situation in Belarus. 

"...Looking at Ukraine, for instance, where we’re all in agreement and stand in solidarity with Ukraine against Russian aggression, which is the external threat they face, but also the internal aggression that they face from corruption and the challenges of moving ahead on the reform process. So we all stand with the same messages there, and obviously the Secretary going to Kyiv from here will give him an opportunity to raise those points with President Zelenskyy and other interlocutors there", said the representative of US Department of the State.
