G-7 will support Ukraine as long as it takesLeaders of the G7 advanced economies promised Monday to extend their financial, military and humanitarian support to Ukraine “for as long as it takes,” stressing that the country must be able to safeguard its sovereignty and “choose its own future.”

In a statement released on the second day of a G7 summit at Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps, the group expressed its “unwavering commitment to support the government and people of Ukraine in their courageous defence of their country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity” and said that its condemns and “will not recognise Russia’s continued attempts to redraw borders by force.”

The “as long it takes” commitment carries an obvious echo of the remarks by former President of the European Central Bank Mario Draghi who said in 2012 that his institution would do “whatever it takes” to preserve the euro currency, marking a turnaround in the financial crisis. Draghi is today Italy’s prime minister and is attending the event with fellow leaders from the U.S, U.K,, France, Germany, Japan and Canada.
