To Refold an Aggressor Toward Global Stability

G-7 Nations meeting in Germany this weekend have stressed that Russia's re-entry into the group is dependent on a turn-around in Moscow's foreign policy. And until this seeming impossibility is accomplished, more sanctions could be imposed on Vladimir Putin's regime for its actions in Ukraine.

Hence, Russia controls its own fate to re-entry into the elite group of wealthy nations since being expelled after it annexed Crimea more than a year ago. However, that this February's Minsk, Belarus, peace agreement on Ukraine has not been fully implemented by Russia or its backed-separatists, discussions at this weekend's G-7 summit will focus on strengthening sanctions on Russia in an attempt to refolding Putin's meddling policies.

United States(US) President Barack Obama has outlined that "standing up to Russian aggression in Ukraine" along with the global economy, trade partnerships, threats from violent extremism and climate change, would figure high on the agenda of the G-7 summit, Reuters reported.

Based on recent actions by pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine, Russia will see a united front presented by the Group of Seven - the United States, France, Germany, Great Britain, Canada, Italy and Japan. And these nations are expected to uphold the sanctions imposed on Russia for its actions against Ukraine, the Associated Press(AP) quoted a top European Union(EU) official.

EU President Donald Tusk has reiterated that the failure to fully implement the Ukraine peace agreement left one question unanswered for the EU - whether to make the sanctions on Russia even tougher, AP reported. "If anyone wants to start a debate about changing the sanctions regime, the discussion could only be about strengthening them," Tusk affirmed. He said Russia's likely return to the club of wealthy nations would depend on a turn-around in Moscow's foreign policy.

Therefore, rather than pursuing an aggressive path that would risk the economic well-being of average Russians, Vladimir Putin has the opportunity to return stability to his people and to Europe by accepting Ukraine's full divorce from his sphere and by recognizing and respecting the sovereignty of the Baltic and Nordic States as well as that of all the former soviet states.
