The ambassadors of the G7 countries welcome the draft reform of the Security Service of Ukraine, which was presented on 3 June. This is stated in their message on the Twitter page.

"G7 Ambassadors welcome the draft law on the SBU that was presented on 3 June. It provides a solid basis for real reform, phasing out pre-trial investigatory powers, downsizing, and demilitarization," the statement reads.

The ambassadors also called on the Verkhovna Rada MPs to support this bill.

"Ambassadors encourage Ukrainian parliament MPs to take this significant opportunity and adopt this law. If implemented, it would represent a major step forward in the SSU’s development into a modern counter-intelligence agency, operating in line with international best practice," they added.

On Saturday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) rich nations to make a commitment to vaccinate the entire world against Covid-19 by the end of 2022 when they meet in Britain next week. 

“Vaccinating the world by the end of next year would be the single greatest feat in medical history. I’m calling on my fellow G7 leaders to join us to end this terrible pandemic and pledge we will never allow the devastation wreaked by coronavirus to happen again,” Johnson said in a statement.
