British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said on Friday that it was vital to keep up the pressure on Russia by supplying more weapons to Ukraine and imposing further sanctions.
“It is very important at this time that we keep up the pressure on Vladimir Putin by supplying more weapons to Ukraine and by increasing the sanctions,” she told reporters on arrival at a G7 foreign ministers meeting in northern Germany.
“G7 unity has been vital during this crisis,” she added.
French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said the G7 countries were “very strongly united” in their will to “continue in the long term to support Ukraine’s fight for its sovereignty until Ukraine’s victory.”
The foreign ministers are meeting over three days in the resort of Wangels in Germany, which currently holds the presidency of the group.
Following @ZelenskyyUa’s talks with G7 leaders, today I asked G7 to seize Russian sovereign assets and give them to Ukraine for rebuilding our country. Russia must pay. Politically, economically, and financially. I appreciate the positive reaction of G7 countries to our request. pic.twitter.com/DpUoanoEtW

Western countries have supplied Ukraine with weapons, including artillery, anti-aircraft missiles, anti-tank weapons and other powerful materiel, but Kyiv has been pushing allies for more support.
