“Regrettably however, Russia has not changed course. This week, we
have all announced additional coordinated sanctions on Russia, including
sanctions on specific companies operating in key sectors of the Russian
economy. We believe it is essential to demonstrate to the Russian
leadership that it must stop its support for the separatists in eastern
Ukraine,” reads a joint statement by G7 leaders, which was posted on the
Web site of the British government.

The statement reads that the Russian government should tangibly
participate in creating the necessary conditions for the political
process.

“Russia still has the opportunity to choose the path of
de-escalation, which would lead to the removal of these sanctions. If it
does not do so, however, we remain ready to further intensify the costs
of its adverse actions,” reads the statement.
