World G7 Threatens Russia With Fresh Sanctions Over Interference in Ukraine Crisis



Group of seven (G7) leaders on Thursday urged #Russia to complete its troop withdrawal from the Ukrainian border, saying they stood ready to intensify targeted sanctions against Russia.

The group of industrialised nations welcomed the May 25 election in Ukraine and Petro Poroshenko's election as Ukraine's new president, according to a statement issued after the first day meeting of the G7 summit.

``We commend the willingness of the Ukrainian authorities to continue the national dialogue in an inclusive manner,’’ the statement said.

The G7 countries urged Russia to recognise the results of the Ukrainian election, complete the withdrawal of its troops from the Ukrainian border and stop the flow of weapons and militants across the border.

``We stand ready to intensify targeted sanctions and to implement significant additional restrictive measures to impose further costs on Russia should events so require,’’ the statement said.
