On Sunday, the Group of Seven countries (G7) warned that Russia faces massive costs and severe consequences if Russian President Vladimir Putin attacks Ukraine. United States intelligence evaluates that Russia could be planning a multi-front attack on Ukraine as soon as next year, involving over one hundred, seventy-five thousand troops. Furthermore, the Kremlin rejects its plans to attack and says Russophobia grips the West.
Moscow states that the expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) threatens Russia and breaches its assurances as the downfall of the Soviet Union happened in 1991. The G7 delegates said they were unified in their criticism of military build-up Russia near Ukraine and requested Moscow to de-escalate. On Saturday evening, the Russian Embassy in London released a statement before the joint G-7 document, saying that the U.K.’s frequent use of Russian anger during the Liverpool meeting was misleading. And it was designed to build a cause for Group of Seven to help out.
