The foreign ministers of the Group of Seven countries issued a joint statement on April 18 saying that third parties aiding Russia in its all-out war against Ukraine will "face severe costs."

The statement expressed support for the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) ongoing efforts to stabilize the ongoing situation around the nuclear power plant.

In early April Rafael Mariano Grossi, the general director of the IAEA, visited the nuclear power plant to assess safety and security firsthand, speak with facility engineers, and ensure the rotation of IAEA experts to and from the site.
