G7领导人警告对俄实施新制裁

发表时间:2017-12-06内容来源:VOA英语学习网

The Group of Seven countries on Monday threatened Russian president Vladimir Putin with new economic sanctions if Moscow escalated military backing for the separatists in eastern Ukraine.

With violence mounting once again in eastern Ukraine, the G7 leaders issued a much tougher warning to the Kremlin than had been expected, with Japan significantly hardening its line and backing a common approach with its partners, the US, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and the UK.

“We are concerned about the recent increase in fighting along the line of contact,” said the G7 in a statement at the end of the summit in southern German resort of Elmau.

Existing economic sanctions could be“rolled back” when Russia implemented its side of the Minsk ceasefire agreement signed in February. “However, we also stand ready to take further restrictive measures in order to increase the cost on Russia should its actions so require,” the leaders added.

President Barack Obama said discussions were taking place about additional measures that the G7 “might need to take if Russia, working through the separatists, doubled down on aggression inside of Ukraine”.

Moscow continues to deny that its forces are directly involved in the fighting in eastern Ukraine, which flared last week with a separatist offensive on the outskirts of Donetsk.

In words that will be welcome by Washington hawks, keen on giving Kiev military assistance, the US president warned Mr Putin against the pursuit “of a wrong-headed desire to recreate the glories of the Soviet empire”.
