Group of Seven allies on Monday convened with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and reiterated their commitment to helping the country combat Russian aggression, TURAN's Washington correspondent reports.

In a statement released after the meeting by the White House, G7 leaders promised to support Ukraine 'for as long as it takes,” calling Kremlin’s actions an “illegal, unjustifiable and unprovoked war of aggression.”

The group further condemned actors facilitating the war: “There can be no impunity for war crimes and other atrocities... We will hold President Putin and those responsible to account in accordance with international law. We reiterate that Russia’s irresponsible nuclear rhetoric is unacceptable and that any use of chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons would be met with severe consequences,” reads the statement.

The leaders vowed to have their finance ministers meet 'shortly' to discuss how to support Ukraine financially into 2023. According to the statement, the International Monetary Fund should be a central player.

They also reiterated their decision to continue to move away from purchasing Russian oil and to set a price cap on it in early February.

“Russia’s war of aggression must end... To date, we have not seen evidence that Russia is committed to sustainable peace efforts. Russia can end this war immediately by ceasing its attacks against Ukraine and completely and unconditionally withdrawing its forces from the territory of Ukraine,” reads the statement.
