At the summit of the Foreign Ministers of the G7 countries in Toronto, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said that the G7 countries would support Ukraine during the elections in the face of Russian aggression. This was reported by Ukrinform.
"Ukraine is all too familiar with the real consequences of Russia's bad treatment, so the G7 countries will continue to support Ukraine during the next elections in the face of aggression," the report said.
She also noted that G7 members will also contribute to "carrying out the necessary anti-corruption and economic reforms" in Ukraine.
As it was reported earlier, G7 Foreign Ministers agreed to create a special group, which will observe Russia’s behavior, as Boris Johnson, British Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, said at the G7 Foreign Ministers summit in Toronto.
It was noted that the main reasons for such G7 decision were a constant tension in the relations with Russia, its involvement in Syria and Ukraine conflicts and Moscow’s involvement in the poisoning of Skripal in Britain.
An outreach session on Ukraine was held on April 22 within the meeting of G7 Foreign Ministers in Toronto. Ukraine participates in the full planned G7 event first-ever. It was stressed that Ukraine was interested in G7 assistance, including its support counterworking Russia’s aggression, the respect of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, the de-occupation of Crimea, counterworking of the propaganda and hybrid threats, the energy security issues, anti-Russian sanctions and reformation process in Ukraine.
