G7 meeting in Germany: sanctions against Putin's Russia are already on the agenda on day one

The 48th summit of the most important industrialized nations in the West is of course taking place in the context of the war that Russia has been waging in Ukraine since February 24th.

Consequently, further sanctions against Vladimir Putin and his supporters are also being debated.

This is also on the agenda for the first day of the summit, as is the global economic situation, climate protection and foreign and security policy.

In order to strengthen democracies worldwide, Scholz has also invited five emerging countries from the south: India, Indonesia, South Africa, Senegal and Argentina.

This is intended to demonstrate that the SPD politician and the other G7 representatives are not just concentrating on the West and ignoring the rest of the world.

A meeting between Scholz and Biden is planned before the summit begins.
