At the G7 summit that is to be held in France on August 24-26, leaders of the member countries (USA, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Canada, Japan) will discuss the situation in Ukraine. This was announced by German Chancellor Angela Merkel in her video message, published on Twitter by the head of the press and information department of the Federal Government of Germany Stefan Seibert.

"We, of course, will talk about the topic of Ukraine. We, of course, will talk about relations with Russia," Merkel said.

As we reported, the President of the European Council Donald Tusk said that Ukraine should be invited to the next G7 summit. He also added that the resumption of Russia's participation in the summit should not be allowed. Politician explains this position by the fact that manifestations of aggression are still visible from the part of the Russian Federation.
