Russia has limited expectations of G7 meeting – Kremlin spokesman

Russia has limited expectations of a virtual meeting of the G7 countries which is now under way, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.

Peskov told reporters that “the mood of this summit is already obvious and predictable – the confrontation will continue”.

Peskov also criticised US promises to supply advanced air defence systems to Ukraine, saying this would only extend the conflict and inflict more pain for Ukraine.
