The President of the United States Donald trump explained the withdrawal of Russia from the “Big eight”.

“it’s Funny to see how corrupt Joe Biden reads the statement, which was obviously written by his supervisors. Russia is so big furnished it and [Barack] Obama when they were in power, what Obama wanted them to come out of the then G8. The US was weak all over, but especially in regards to Russia!” – trump wrote in his Twitter.

Recall that in late may, trump decided to invite the G7 to Russia, India, Australia and South Korea.

In August last year, trump advocated the return of Russia in the G8. Later the White house said that the invitation of Russia at the G7 summit in the United States in 2020 could be an intermediate step to restore the G8 format. However, in early December, 2019 U.S. congressmen voted against the participation of Russia in the G7.

After that, the foreign Ministry reported that Russia wishes to join the G7.

In the Kremlin noted that the return of the “Big eight” is not Russia’s goal. Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was not against the restoration of the format “Big eight”, but stated that the era of the West is coming to an end.
