France affirmed that the Group of Seven industrialized nations (G7) is committed to supporting Ukraine until it wins the war against Russia.

The G7 countries were "very strongly united" in their will to "continue in the long term to support Ukraine's fight for its sovereignty until Ukraine's victory", according to France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.

In the same vein, the foreign ministers from the G7 group backed giving more aid and weapons to Kyiv as they met on Friday in what Germany called a "powerful sign of unity" to deepen Russia's global isolation.

Meanwhile, the European Union's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell announced a further 500 million euros worth of military support to Ukraine, stressing that he was confident that an EU embargo on Russian oil could be agreed in the coming days.

"(It will be) more pressure on Russia with economic sanctions and continuing the international isolation of Russia and countering misinformation," he said.
