Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Can G7 remain united against President Vladimir Putin? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

Four months of war in Ukraine have exposed deep divisions in the global order.

But the fighting is also highlighting – and testing – some of the oldest and strongest alliances.

The G-7, a group of the world’s seven largest economies, is meeting this week in Germany.

Sanctions by some of its members – and counter sanctions from Russia – have disrupted everything they’ve touched.

From oil prices, to supply chains, to the price of bread on the other side of the world.

But is that enough?
