Leaders are calling on Russia to end “systemic repression of civil society and independent media.”
The leaders of the G7 member countries called on Russia to “stop destabilizing activities”, including mediations and interventions, to respect human rights and bring to justice those responsible for cyberattacks from its territory.
We call on Russia to urgently investigate, explain credibly, and provide credible explanations for the use of chemical weapons on its territory – the leaders state in their final statement regarding Russia.
The call for an investigation into chemical weapons is interpreted in the context of the poisoning of prominent Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who was treated in Germany for the consequences of poisoning with a novice war poison.
Leaders are calling on Russia to end “systemic repression of civil society and independent media, and to identify and hold accountable those who carry out cyberattacks within the country’s borders,” it said.
