US Congress opposed Russia's return to the G7

95
The US Congress strongly opposed Russia's return to the G-7 format and its transformation into the G-8. The resolution against the accession of Moscow was adopted by the US House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs. This is stated in a message on the website of one of the authors of the document of Congressman Albio Cyres.


US Congress opposed Russia's return to the G7


The US Congress passed a resolution against Russia's return to the G-7 format. The document says that Russia should not have access to this format until it "respects the territorial integrity of its neighbors" and until it "adheres to the standards of democratic societies." According to congressmen, since 2014, when Russia stopped participating in this format, none of these conditions have been met. The decision was made unanimously.

Recall that the G-7 includes Germany, the USA, Canada, Japan, France, the UK and Italy, in 1998 the format was expanded to the G-8 due to the accession of Russia. In this form, it lasted until the 2014 year, when in connection with the return of the Crimea, Russia was excluded from the format.

Note that talk of Russia’s returning to G7 began with Donald Trump, who proposed inviting Vladimir Putin to the next G-7 meeting planned for 2020 in the United States. According to the American leader, it makes no sense to discuss some world problems without Russia. At the same time, in Europe they could not come to a common opinion on this issue, linking the return of Russia with the issue of a settlement in Ukraine.

In turn, Vladimir Putin said earlier that Russia does not seek to return to G7, since all issues are resolved in a completely different format - the "Big Twenty."

      This so-called "Big Seven" without Russia is just an empty phrase and nothing more.
      Against the backdrop of the political degradation of the United States and its vassals, Russia, on the contrary, raises its rating and does not need leniency on returning to this sandbox.

      The American Congress strongly opposed the return of Russia to the GXNUMX format and its transformation into the GXNUMX.
      Of course, the "Big Six" is more profitable for them, where the seventh, chief godfather, the United States, who would doubt

      The Kremlin sleeps and sees when the sanctions cease, takes all efforts to do this, and returning to the Big Seven is one of the steps to ending the sanctions.

        But you do not follow the information of the Kremlin itself.
        Repeatedly on such issues at the highest level, at least the need for the big twenty has been declared.
        And at the moment, Russia is developing a much larger project of global cooperation.

          That's not the question.

            Observe the intensity and effectiveness of international contacts in Russia at the moment.
            This level has never happened in the history of Russia.
            I understand that there are always two views.

                What I managed to learn from the primary sources should have led to the opinion that everything would definitely collapse.
                However, what I see now has nothing to do with the disaster.

            Who rules the world there? What a 7. 90s stayed in the last century wake up. Now there are other processes. Does Canada rule the world? Ahaha, in which case it will block the screw with maple syrup and all the khan lol Italy? Which is in a state of "pre-bankruptcy" and does not know when to get out from there. England with Brexit? Which after January 31, 2020 it is not yet known what it will look like. Does France rule the world? They forgot to withdraw the special forces from Syria and they whined to the whole world that they were thrown, well, the world ruler is what you need. I am generally silent about Japan, the occupied islands with an official ban on having their own army, but with permission to have them, the same to me the rulers wassat Name at least one fateful decision that the Big Seven has made over the past five years. That's what would directly take and change the world. And if you want, I’ll tell you about Russia, I just went into Syria to the offhand and completely changed the global alignment, now it’ll start three pipelines and the world will change even more, the Northern Sea Route will be launched with the inclusion of the Chinese project of the new Silk Road and the world will never be the same . So your fetish about 7-ku is no longer relevant.

Brexit in England and rummaging in their parliament is a stamp from the 80s laughing Japan is not docked, and Germany has over 100 American military bases in Germany, what are you talking about, I didn’t say that they rot, you said that, I said that they are the rulers of the world like a bullet from "poop". And yes, you never said about the fateful decision for the whole world, made by the big 7th over the past 5 years. I will help you, the only decision is not fateful, but loud and useless that your rulers have made over the past 5 years, this is the exclusion of Russia from the 8 laughing Well, a strong move, just like PASS good those, too, stamped their feet, almost went bankrupt.

        By the way, if we consider in detail all the criteria for membership in this "big seven" that the US Congress is promoting, then the United States should be the first to be excluded from this club.

      The world has broken up into different formats. Countries agree directly with each other, or groups of countries. And this has nothing to do with either 7 or 20.

          Nothing of the kind, the world is breaking up in real life.
          Trade barriers, sanctions, double standards - all this creates distrust, deepens cracks even in “traditional” blocks and forces to negotiate “face to face”. What globalization is there? One migrant question in the EU is worth it. A brexit? Think about it.

          The so-called globalization exists on the Internet, that is, the speed of information transfer has increased by orders of magnitude, as well as the ability to create fakes.
          You can find out that a crocodile was grabbing a tourist’s ass in the suburbs of some Darwin in Australia a few minutes later, but 15 years ago you would never have known about this absolutely significant event, although it was going for you. And was that a crocodile ... and a tourist? Unknown

            Well, the former intelligence officer probes the position of the Americans, guessing in advance what answer he will receive, since the Americans are clearly nervous. Like Putin didn’t behave, didn’t prepare Russia for NATO membership, and they don’t like him in the West. NATO has not dreamed of before. So this is not an argument. In the interview, Putin blames the conflict on the Americans, arguing that you quoted.

        ZAKHAROVA WANTS TO OFFICIALLY TALK ABOUT RUSSIA'S RETURN TO G7.
        21.08.2019.
        Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the Russian side is waiting for concrete proposals on Russia's possible return to the GXNUMX. This is reported by the "Moscow Says" edition.

        "Proposals should be formed, if any, and submitted to the Russian side for consideration. Now it is difficult to understand what is at stake. Therefore, it is necessary to transfer the discussion of this topic from the public and entertainment sphere to the professional sphere, if the seven wants to position itself as a serious format," she said.

      if my will Russia left the hysterical anti-Russian organization called PACE,

      According to Vladimir Bruter, a political scientist at the International Institute for Humanitarian and Political Studies, the work of the Russian delegation at PACE makes it possible to conduct discussions on this site during which all the most pressing problems of today are discussed. Given the continued sanction pressure on the Russian Federation and the frank reluctance of powerful Western forces, primarily the United States, to speak with Moscow, this assembly is an effective tool for upholding Russia's interests in the international arena. In practical terms, participation in the work of PACE gives Moscow the right to participate in the election of the organization’s secretary general, to vote on various resolutions of the assembly, as well as to accept conclusions on the candidatures of new member states and to monitor their implementation of the commitments made upon accession. PACE adopts conclusions on the draft of all international conventions developed by the Council of Europe.

      Separately, it is worth highlighting the right of PACE delegations to choose judges to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and the Commissioner for Human Rights. This institution is seen by many as the last hope in the struggle for the triumph of legal justice. However, according to the chairman of the Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, without the participation of Russia in the work of the assembly, the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights would not be recognized by Moscow as legitimate.

      Yes, not among ghouls, but among pro-American sixes. So for me, Russia's exit from the G8 is like raising the status of the country, since we have ceased to be a semi-colony, in the wake of the United States. A sign that the country began to follow the path (albeit at the very beginning of this difficult path, but still) of self-sufficiency, the country's solvency as an independent unit, and not as someone's appendage, serving someone else. All these sanctions, anti-Russian resolutions, attempts to return us to the so-called "civilized" community, serve the desire to return us to the stall of pro-American slaves. There are gentlemen Anglo-Saxons, and all the rest of the laborers.

    The US Congressmen are against, but we probably still somehow side their opinion. There is currently no huge desire to increase the sevens on our part. They will press and forget about their vote. In general, this planetary chief was completely unbridled, having arrogated to himself the right to individually make decisions in the world and try to build everyone under American Wishlist and jurisdiction.

    And what, someone in Russia asked for the G7? A strange decision when they begin to prohibit entering where no one was going to enter. I can imagine if it were written on the trash can: "Don't get inside!" What a reaction this caused from passers-by and the public in general.
    The G7 has long lost its former influence. It would be logical to include Ukraine there, since, as it turned out, it is she who greatly influences the fate of the world and directly on the domestic and foreign policy of the US government. And it is not for American elders to tell how someone should behave with their "neighbors."
