UK Foreign Minister Liz Truss warned Russia on Sunday that the world’s richest countries would harshly punish a possible invasion of Ukraine.
The military threat from Moscow has focused the meeting of the members of the G7 this weekend in Liverpool.
‘The world’s largest economies are united’
It is not known if details about the measures to be taken will be revealed. Regarding economic sanctions, according to Truss they do not rule out any option,
“The world’s largest economies are united,” Truss said. “We have sent a powerful signal to our adversaries and winged ones. We have made it clear that any Russian incursion into Ukraine would have enormous consequences at enormous cost. We have also shown that we stand up for freedom, democracy and the right of people everywhere to live without repression “.
The United States does not contemplate sending troops
This Saturday President Joe Biden assured that he has never considered sending troops to Ukraine.
A common response from countries with such diverse interests has always been difficult. Germany depends on Russian gas; the City of London and the British property market are major recipients of their capital.
