G7 Asks China Not to Help Russia; Demands Lift of Russian Blockade of Ukraine’s Ports

On May 14, The Group of Seven (G7) leading economies including the U.S., Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan, appealed to China to not help Russia, warning that Moscow’s unprovoked aggression is threatening the entire world with a severe food and energy crisis.

An estimated 25 million tons of grain has been blocked from leaving ports in Ukraine, particularly affecting countries in the Middle East and Asia.

The broad-reaching statement, which was released upon the conclusion of a three-day summit in Germany, also called on Beijing "to desist from engaging in information manipulation, disinformation and other means to legitimize Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine.”

The G7 ministers at the meeting in Germany also agreed to reinforce isolating sanctions against Russia including phasing out the purchase of Russian oil and coal, while also continuing to provide defense and military aid to Kyiv, including by providing weapons for many years into the future if necessary.
