G7 states support Ukraine’s sovereignty, threaten Russia with serious consequences

Bishkek (AKIpress) - obama-g7 G7 states have adopted a declaration on support for Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence and threatened Russia with serious consequences in case the situation worsens, 24 TV Channel reported.

“We, the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, the President of the European Council and the President of the European Commission met in The Hague to reaffirm our support for Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence,” according to the Hague Declaration of the G7 adopted yesterday.

The document emphasizes that the international law prohibits the acquisition of part or all of another state’s territory “through coercion or force.”

“To do so violates the principles upon which the international system is built. We condemn the illegal referendum held in Crimea in violation of Ukraine’s constitution. We also strongly condemn Russia’s illegal attempt to annex Crimea in contravention of international law and specific international obligations. We do not recognize either”, the leaders have stated.

“This clear violation of international law is a serious challenge to the rule of law around the world and should be a concern for all nations. In response to Russia’s violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and to demonstrate our determination to respond to these illegal actions, individually and collectively we have imposed a variety of sanctions against Russia and those individuals and entities responsible. We remain ready to intensify actions including coordinated sectoral sanctions that will have an increasingly significant impact on the Russian economy, if Russia continues to escalate this situation,” the G7 leaders claimed.
