The Kremlin has noticed the sanctions rhetoric of the G7 summit participants, but also mentioned other statements, Russian presidential press officer Dmitry Peskov said.

"We have noticed that statements have been made on the sanctions issue. These statements are not new. At the same time, we have also noticed certain nuances in the participants' approaches: some of them say there is a need to continue dialogue with Russia and that serious problems cannot be resolved without this dialogue," Peskov told reporters on June 8.

Peskov said the Kremlin continues to "closely follow" the G7 summit.

"We have also pointed out the tendency to link the sanctions issue to the fulfillment by Russia of the Minsk agreements. We have already said more than once that one just has to read these Minsk agreements, refresh them in one's memory once again to understand who has to fulfill the Minsk agreements. In this case, we have currently not heard any calls to those who have to fulfill them," Peskov said.

At the same time, he said the summit is not over yet and its results will be summed up later.
