This is said in a joint communiqué on the results of the G7 summit held in the UK, Ukrinform reports.

“We call on Russia to alleviate tensions and act in accordance with its international obligations, and to withdraw the Russian military troops and materiel at the eastern border of Ukraine and on the Crimean peninsula,” the document says.

The G7 leaders reiterated their support for “the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders”.

The G7 leaders also affirmed their support for the Normandy Process to secure the implementation of the Minsk agreements, and “called on Russia and the armed formations it backs to engage constructively and recommit to the ceasefire”.
