At the G7 summit, which will be held June 26 & 28 in Germany, the consequences of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, including the possibility of a diplomatic solution to the conflict, will be discussed. This was stated at a press conference before the summit by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.

“The consequences of Russian aggression against Ukraine will be discussed in the coming days, in particular, the question of whether it is possible to find a diplomatic solution, as well as preparations for situation, if such an opportunity does not exist, — he said.

According to him, the world today is facing a combination of global challenges, including: the consequences of COVID-19, climate change and the conflict in Ukraine. It is this, Blinken points out, that has led to food problems and a security crisis.

Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24th. Representatives of 141 countries in the UN General Assembly condemned the actions of the Russian authorities, demanded a ceasefire and the withdrawal of troops. Kyiv imposed martial law and severed diplomatic relations with Moscow.

The last face-to-face negotiations took place on March 29 in Istanbul. Then Ukraine proposed to create a new system of security guarantees with the participation of countries from the UN Security Council, which would not operate in the Crimea and Donbass. In the event that guarantees are provided, Kyiv would agree to renounce the production and deployment of all types of weapons of mass destruction on the territory of Ukraine, join military alliances, and conduct military exercises on the territory of Ukraine without the consent of the guarantor states, including Russia.

After the talks in Istanbul, the head of the Russian delegation, Vladimir Medinsky, said that the Russian military would drastically reduce military activity in the Kiev and Chernigov directions “due to the fact that negotiations with Ukraine are moving into a practical plane.” The Ministry of Defense later explained the decision by the fact that the main tasks in these areas were completed. In April, Kyiv interrupted the negotiation process.
