The State Department confirmed: the United States will return Russia to the "Big Eight"

It would be surprising if Donald Trump missed the chance to give a slap in the face to his European “partners” and “allies”, who make a good face for a bad game and say that Russia has not yet earned a return to the “Big Eight”.

The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, during an interview with Fox News, said that the White House, in accordance with the order of Donald Trump, will work to return the "Big Seven" to the G8 format with the participation of Russia.

When asked if he agrees with this idea, the Secretary of State said that he works for the president, and therefore will work to achieve this goal.

It should be noted that the American president has every chance to achieve what he wants, in any case, at least, to break the resistance of European leaders in this matter, since next year the summit should be held in the USA.

The difficulties for fulfilling Trump's desire should be sought in a different plane, namely, in the desire of Moscow itself to take part in this format, in which there are no players such as China and India.

In this light, the format of the G-XNUMX, in which it is already participating, is much more preferable for Russia than the G-XNUMX.

Recall that in March 2014, members of the G7 decided to return to the GXNUMX format, excluding Russia from the list of participants.

    What, again, you need a “whipping boy” there - we’ll always please ... But when will we, Russians and Russians, be proud of our country, and not crawl on our knees in front of the West, do not curry favor with it, and do not whine loyally to any shout or spit from the other side ??????

    This is how you should not respect yourself in order to agree.

    Fable of I. A. Krylov "Fox and grape".

    The hungry Kuma Fox climbed into the garden;
    In it the grapes of the brush were held.
    At the cinque, eyes and teeth were inflamed;
    A brush is juicy, like yachts burn;
    Only trouble, they hang high:
    Wherever she goes to them,
    Though he sees the eye,
    Yes, tooth noumet.
    Breaking through the whole hour,
    I went and said with vexation: "Well, then!
    At a glance, he is good,
    Yes, green - no mature berries:
    Immediately you’ll nag your mouth. "

      She already “wanted” not to raise the retirement age. They will say: it is necessary.
      And they will ask to be treated with understanding.

    First, the lifting of all sanctions against Russia, and then "8". Otherwise, it will look like a fined worker who was called by the factory administration to chastise for the next "offense" and to teach the factory administration how to behave and respect.
