Germany has initiated a meeting of foreign ministers from the Group of Seven following the latest Russian missile attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure. The meeting will take place in Bucharest.
The announcement was made on Twitter by German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock.
“Next week, as the country chairing the G7, we will invite other partners at the level of foreign ministers to a meeting in Bucharest to initiate additional support for Ukraine’s energy supply,” Baerbock wrote.
She described Russia’s attacks on civilian infrastructure as “an intolerable, inhumane crime”. According to the minister, Putin is trying to throw the Ukrainian people into cold and darkness. “He will never break their desire for freedom and our support,” added Annalena.
Germany chairs the G7 group throughout 2022.
A meeting of the North Atlantic Council at the level of foreign ministers will take place in Bucharest on November 29 and 30. It will be chaired by the Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg.
