Sanctions lifted when truce respected: G7

0

LUEBECK, Germany: Russia can expect international sanctions against it to be lifted only when it complies with the terms of a ceasefire with Ukraine, foreign ministers from the Group of Seven said on Wednesday. The top diplomats, gathering in Germany for their second meeting since the expulsion of Russia from their ranks last year over its annexation of Crimea, said the truce agreed in February in the Belarussian capital of Minsk must be respected. “Sanctions are not an end in themselves; their duration should be clearly linked to Russia’s complete implementation of the Minsk agreements and respect for Ukraine’s sovereignty,” the ministers said in a joint declaration.
