Russia suspended from G-8 over crimea Annexation

(Paris) – France’s foreign minister says that leaders of the Group of Eight world powers have suspended Russia’s participation in the club amid tensions over Ukraine and Russia’s incursion into Crimea. The other seven members of the group had already suspended preparations for a G-8 summit that Russia is scheduled to host in June in Sochi.
France’s Laurent Fabius said that “concerning the G-8 … we decided to suspend Russia´s participation, and it is envisaged that all the other countries, the seven leading countries, will unite without Russia.” The U.S. and European Union announced new sanctions against Russia over its actions in the Crimean Peninsula.
