International sanctions against Russia should only be lifted when all of its troops have left Ukraine, Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs of the United Kingdom, Liz Truss has said, APA reports citing BBC.
Liz Truss also told a meeting of G7 foreign ministers on Thursday that allies should go "further and faster" in supporting Ukraine's resistance.
She said Russian President Vladimir Putin must face a defeat that prevents further aggression.
Some analysts have warned this stance may make a political settlement harder.
The Foreign Office said Ms. Truss urged her counterparts at the meeting in Germany to commit to further waves of sanctions for as long as Russian troops remain in Ukraine.
She told them: "Putin is humiliating himself on the world stage. We must ensure he faces a defeat in Ukraine that denies him any benefit and ultimately constrains further aggression."
