G7 ministers deplore Russia’s participation in international forums, including the G20, International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings this week.
The finance ministers of the G7 countries have said that, together with the international community, they will provide more than $24 billion in additional support to Ukraine in 2022 and 2023.
“Against the backdrop of the ongoing brutal Russian aggression, the resulting suffering of the Ukrainian population and the prolonged destruction of the country itself, we are ready to do more if necessary,” the statement said.
In their statement, the ministers added that they regret Russia’s participation in international forums, including the meetings of the G20, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank this week.
“International organizations and multilateral forums should no longer conduct their business with Russia in the usual manner,” the G7 ministers said.
The finance ministers also offered “unwavering support and sincere solidarity with the Ukrainian people and government.” “We continue to support Ukraine,” the statement said.
