Russia should not join the G7 because the country is living the “Soviet evil.” This statement was made by the U.S. Senator of the Republican party, member of foreign Affairs Committee of the Senate Lindsey Graham. Reported by ABC.
“The Soviet Union may have collapsed, but the evil he embodies, and lives in Putin’s Russia”, — said the Republican.
This statement he made on the background of statements of the President of the United States Donald trump before the G7 summit. The latter spoke of the need for Russian participation in such negotiations. “I think it would be good for the world, for Russia, for America, for all of the G7 countries (…) We are looking for world peace, not playing games,” he said.
The G8 has ceased to exist in 2014 after joining the Crimea to Russia. Then the leaders of major world powers has refused to participate in the summit that Russia, as chair, was held in Sochi. Instead, in Brussels, a meeting of “seven” — G7 (France, UK, USA, Germany, Japan, Italy and Canada).
