G7 should tighten sanctions against Russia - Canadian human rights activist

The G7 member countries should work out a unified approach to the sanctions pressure on Russia.

Well-known Canadian human rights activist Marcus Kolga stated this in his article for The Star portal.

"A harmonized system of defensive G7 sanctions will create serious consequences for the Kremlin and like-minded regimes that seek to undermine our democratic systems, institutions and society," Kolga wrote.

"With the upcoming G7 summit in Quebec, Canada has a unique opportunity to build on the international credibility it earned by adopting Magnitsky legislation by placing it on the G7 agenda.," the report reads.

Kolga noted that the United States, Canada and the U.K already adopted Magnitsky legislation. "France and Germany are likely motivated to find ways to hold accountable and deter those who meddle in their elections," the author wrote.

On June 8-9, the summit of the leaders of the G7 countries will be held in the Canadian city of Charlevoix, Quebec.
