President Macron joined G7 meeting to plan further sanctions on Russia 


French President Emmanuel Macron has attended the virtual meeting with the G7 group leaders with the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky; and commemorated the 77th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe on Sunday, May 8, 2022.

President Macron has participated in the G7 Virtual Leader meeting chaired by Chancellor Olaf Scholz. They discussed the latest developments in Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine. 


G7 is an inter-governmental political forum, including Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. 

While referring to the meeting and commemorating the Victory in Europe Day, President Macron noted on his official Twitter account, “On May 8, 1945, Europe was free from fascism and indescribable human suffering. 77 years later, peace on our continent is jeopardized by Russia who made the choice to attack and invade a sovereign country, Ukraine.”

Further, he informed about the video conference with members of the group G7 and Ukrainian President Zelensky and their objective to maintain Ukraine’s prestige as a sovereign state and its territorial integrity and declared the war must end.

President Macron wrote, “In support of the Ukrainian people, the members of the G7 have mobilized. The aid already represents more than $24 billion for 2022 and the years to come. I confirmed on Thursday that France will increase its support by $300 million, bringing our aid to $2 billion.”

“The sanctions imposed by G7 members on Russia are unprecedented. They will get stronger again. We commit today to gradually eliminate our dependence on Russian energy.” President added. 

The group G7 has committed to banning the import of Russian oil and recognized the economic implications of the war in Ukraine on energy, fertilizer provision, food security and supply chains.
