The United Kingdom is very clear that Russia cannot return to the G7 while it continues its destabilising activity in Ukraine, as well as wider malign activity, including in Salisbury last year, and in Syria. The United Kingdom strongly defended this position at the G7 Summit last month. This is not the moment to relax pressure on Russia.
