The Russian Federation must pay for the damage and destruction it causes to Ukraine in this war.

This was stated in the communique following the meeting of foreign ministers of the Group of Seven countries in Capri, Italy.

"We, the G7 Foreign Ministers of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, and the High Representative of the European Union, strongly condemn Russia’s ongoing war of aggression against Ukraine. We reaffirm our unwavering determination to support democratic Ukraine as it defends its freedom, sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity, within its internationally recognized borders.  We pay tribute to the bravery and resilience of the Ukrainian people, fighting for their freedom and democratic future," the communique reads.

The foreign ministers added that Russian assets will remain frozen in the West until Russia stops its aggression and pays for the damage it has caused to Ukraine.

"We welcome the adoption by the EU of the legal acts concerning extraordinary revenues held by private entities stemming directly from Russia’s immobilized sovereign assets also in view to exploring ways to maximize the benefit for Ukraine that can be obtained from these revenues.
