G7 or G8

In 2014 Russia following Russian takeover of Crimea the world reacted and asked Russia to back off. Russians said, “No” and faced sanctions and isolation. During the last G7 summit in Quebec, Canada, US President Donald Trump voiced in favor of Russia and wanted Russia in G7 and turn it to G8. Russia was suspended from the elite G8 group of leading economies, who said they could not accept its breach of international law. A G7
statement released said: ‘This group came together because of shared beliefs and shared responsibilities. Russia’s actions in recent weeks are not consistent with them.’ David Cameron, Barack Obama and other world leaders said it was up to Vladimir Putin to ‘change course’ over Ukraine or his country will remain excluded indefinitely.
