G7 leaders to discuss Ukraine war, food and energy crises

The G7 leaders are in Germany, looking to back Ukraine against Russia’s invasion and deal with the intensifying global fallout of the war, trying to increase pressure on Putin while avoiding sanctions that could stoke inflation and exacerbate the cost-of-living crisis affecting their countries.

They are set to agree to ban imports of gold from Russia, a source familiar with the matter told the Reuters news agency. A German government source said leaders were discussing a possible price cap on Russian oil imports.

The summit is also expected to discuss options for tackling rising energy prices and replacing Russian oil and gas imports.

The summit is at the resort of Schloss Elmau at the foot of the Zugspitze mountain – where Germany last hosted the G7 in 2015. Then too, Russian aggression against Ukraine dominated the agenda a year after Moscow’s invasion of Crimea.
