US Government To Unveil Fresh Sanctions On Russia As G7 Summit Begins

The US government is hoping to unveil new sanctions on Russia which are set to be announced at the summit. Washington says these new sanctions including banning 70 entities from receiving US exports as well as another 300 new sanctions on other individuals are aimed at crippling Moscow’s war machine in Ukraine.

Meanwhile the war in Ukraine which is now in its 15 month is at the top of the summit agenda and countries which haven’t been openly critical of Russia such as additional guest India may be under pressure to act.

India for a while declined to adhere to western sanctions on Russian imports. So far the EU and the UK have flagged they will crack down on Russian diamonds.

A US government spokesperson told media this morning they expect all G7 members will unveil new measures over the weekend.

Meanwhile this is the second G7 summit to be dominated by the invasion of Ukraine and overnight, Russia’s aerial assault campaign continued.

Many drones have targeted Ukraine’s capital Kyiv

Air raid alerts were earlier declared around Ukraine for about an hour with reports of explosions in several cities.

Meanwhile officials said Russian war planes were in the air and warned of a threat of airstrikes including from hypersonic khinzal missiles to all regions of the country.

Large number of drones have so far targeted the capital Kyiv, the head of the local civilian military administration.

In a developing story there are reports that Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky will make an in person visit this weekend.

This is according to media outlets bloomberg and The Financial Times who cite unnamed sources.

“ We knew Ukraine’s leader was expected to address the G7 leaders on Sunday but via a video link though there had been speculation that he might turn up in person.”
