Russia on Sunday accused G7 leaders of turning their summit in Japan into a “propaganda show” by inviting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and stoking “anti-Russian and anti-Chinese hysteria”.
“The leaders of the G7 brought the leader of the Kiev regime controlled by them to their meeting and turned the Hiroshima event into a propaganda show,” says the Russian Foreign Ministry.
“The main conclusion of the summit was a series of statements filled with hateful anti-Russian and anti-Chinese messages,” the statement said.
The ministry noted that the G7 has become “an incubator where Anglo-Saxon-led destructive initiatives are being developed that undermine global stability.”
The decline of the West’s global influence “forces the members of this body to invest all their energies in anti-Russian and anti-Chinese hysteria,” the statement said.
“We are convinced that our assessment of the G7 and its destructive actions is shared by the majority of the international community,” he added.
