The leaders of the G7 nations pledged open-ended support for Ukraine after the second day of a three-day summit in Germany.
In a statement, the leaders of the US, Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Canada said they would provide Ukraine with military, economic, and humanitarian assistance “for as long as it takes.”
“We will continue to provide financial, humanitarian, military and diplomatic support and stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes,” the statement said. The G7 leaders said they are “committed to sustaining and intensifying international economic and political pressure” on Russia and Belarus through economic sanctions.
The White House released a fact sheet announcing a plan to implement new sanctions on Russia in coordination with G7 nations. Under the plan, the US will implement higher tariffs on more than 570 groups of Russian products, a move that comes as Americans are facing soaring inflation and gas prices.
