Basis for exclusion of Russia from G8 still exists - Germany

BERLIN - Russia was excluded from the Group of Eight powers over its annexation of the Crimea peninsula and the basis for that decision still stands, a German government spokesman said on Wednesday. It is up to the Russian leadership to end this situation, Steffen Seibert told a regular news conference in Berlin. Russia was expelled from what was then the Group of Eight in 2014 when Donald Trump s predecessor, Barack Obama, was U.S. president, after Moscow annexed the Crimea region from Ukraine. Russia still holds the territory, and various G7 governments have rebuffed previous calls from Trump to re-admit Moscow. REUTERS
