On his page on the social network Facebook the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine has expressed concern about the widespread rumors about the likelihood of returning to the “Big seven” of Russia, reports replyua.net. “Concerned about the assumptions about possible return of the Russian Federation in the G7”, – stated in the message.
Us diplomats drew attention to the fact that Russia was deprived of the right to be a member of this honourable club in connection with the illegal annexation of Crimea and use of force in violation of the norms and principles of international law. “The occupation of the Ukrainian Peninsula continues, the situation with human rights deteriorating steadily, the Russian aggression in the Donbas continues, and Russia itself is rapidly removed from the principles and standards that bring together members of the group of seven”, – said in the message.
In this regard, the diplomatic mission called on the leaders of member countries G7 to adhere to its principled position and to make a concerted effort to force the aggressor to respect the international order and to return to constructive behavior.
