Trump: Russia should participate in the summit «the Big seven»

Russia’s membership in the»Big seven» should be restored, told reporters before leaving for the annual G7 summit , the US President Donald trump. In his opinion, Russia is excluded from the international club in 2014 due to the annexation of Crimea to participate in the summit along with the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the UK.

«Russia needs to be at this meeting, — said trump. — Why are we without Russia? These are my recommendations — and that’s their business. But Russia should be at the meeting, it should be a part of it. You know, like it or not, it may be politically incorrect, but we have to rule the world, and they threw Russia out of the G7, which should be the G8».

Russia was excluded from the so-called «Big eight» in 2014 because of the seizure of the Crimean Peninsula. Representatives of other G8 Nations, led by Barack Obama took this decision to emphasize the unacceptability of changing international boundaries by force.

«President trump chose the wrong side: autocrats, corrupt and anti-Americans who see President Vladimir Putin as a natural ally, said Daniel fried, a former diplomat, who oversaw the introduction of sanctions against Russia after its invasion of Ukraine. — Such rhetoric will confuse America’s allies and encourage our enemies.»

Likely, trump is seeking the support of the Kremlin, without reaching consensus with the leaders of Canada and France in international trade.

In addition, the leader of the White house stated that miss the end of the session in Quebec city on Saturday, June 9, in connection with the preparations for the summit with Kim Jong-UN in Singapore, which will be held may 12.

We will remind, the Ukrainian Director Oleg Sentsov sent a letter to the leaders of the «Big seven», in which he called on them to help release political prisoners in Russia.
