No G7 Invite For Putin

OWoN: So, as the death rattle of a dying Empire Putin is not invited to G7.

Does anyone care, the ship has sailed with a Eurasian reality that now costs the farmers of Europe dearly.

Russia understands Europe better than Europe understands itself as a pawn in a larger game, of out dated unipolar hegemony.

Trade for Russia is growing while ever declining for Europe, so who wins?

The G of 7 or 8 is no longer relevant like it has been in the past. The West is no longer in the drivers chair like it has been. Ask the Turkish farmer selling strawberries to Russia or the apple producers of South America. One day trade will become more relevant than the lips of out of touch politicians. The future is always defining by trade, not politics, and therefore prosperity.

Politicians never earn a Dime, they only waste other peoples.

No G7 Invite For Putin

Radio Free Europe

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has said that Russian President Vladimir Putin will not be invited to attend the G7 summit of leading industrial nations in Bavaria this June.

In an interview published in the April 12 edition of Die Welt, Steinmeier was asked about calls from the leader of Germany's Left party to invite Putin to summit to discuss international crises.

Steinmeier said it was not anyone's interest to isolate Russia but he added after Russia's illegal annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, "we cannot act as if nothing happened and carry on business as usual."

Steinmeier said while it was desirable to have Russia involved in helping resolve crises in Syria, Yemen, and Libya the subject of including Moscow and renewing the G8 was a closed issue for now.

Steinmeier said, "The way back to the G8 will come through respecting the unity of Ukraine and implementing Russian obligations from the Minsk treaty."

The leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States met last year without Putin, also in protest at Russia's actions in Ukraine.
