Moscow says ahead of G7 meeting it expects more ‘confrontation’ with West

The Kremlin says it expects more “confrontation” with the West, ahead of an emergency G7 meeting to discuss the latest Russian strikes on Ukraine.

“The mood ahead of the summit is well understood, it is easily predictable. The confrontation will continue,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov tells reporters, adding that Russia will “achieve its set goals” in Ukraine.

Peskov also criticizes Washington’s pledge to provide Ukraine with “advanced air defense systems.”

“De facto, the United States is already bogged down in this affair,” he says, adding that the deliveries will make “this conflict longer and more painful for the Ukrainian side.”

“But it’s not going to change our goals and the end result,” he adds.
