MFA: Russia “completely disappeared” desire to return to G8


For three whole months (August - October 2019), Western leaders actively flirted with Moscow with the theme of Russia's return to the G7 club and the revival of the G8. Paris and Washington competed in eloquence and pointedly stated that the G7 summit in the United States, which is due to take place in 2020, could be an intermediate step towards restoring a full-fledged G8 format.


After that, Moscow took a break. However, already in early December 2019, American lawmakers voted against Russia's participation in the G7 summits. They demanded that Moscow "comply with the standards of a democratic society." Moreover, Washington has demonstrated its "partnership" in another direction, imposing sanctions to the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline at the end of December 2019.

Therefore, the decision made in Moscow regarding the possible participation of Russia in the G7 is understandable. On December 20, 2019, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov at the site of the Valdai discussion club, said that Moscow’s desire to join the G7 “disappeared completely”.

This is from the series “They Married Me Without Me”. No one asked if we want to return to the "seven". This desire began to dull long before the Seven resigned from the Russian presidency in 2014. And then it disappeared completely

- declared Ryabkov.

We absolutely do not have just a desire to return there, but even by and large to delve into what kind of preconditions for Russia’s return to the “seven” this group of countries, or at least some of them formulate

- emphasized Ryabkov.

According to Ryabkov, there are currently other formats (platforms) where "really serious issues are being discussed." For example, G-20 and BRICS.

    FOX AND VINOGRAD

    Hungry godfather 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.
    Having made it through the whole hour,
    She went and said in vexation: “Well, then!
    At a glance, he is good,
    Yes, green - no mature berries:
    Immediately you’ll nag your mouth. ”

      Now it’s clear why the Russians do not like the fables of Russian journalist, fabulist, poet, publisher of satirical and educational magazines Ivan Andreevich Krylov ...

    It is high time to declare unequivocally about the complete uselessness for Russia of the club of "great" debtors! And tell the president himself!

    Why does Russia need the G7 ... if these "funny" nipple countries depend on Russia ..
    Russia is the only Great Power in the world that has huge reserves of minerals and energy resources, on which the WHOLE world depends ... therefore, these "nipple countries" -G7 Russia don't give a fuck.
    Moreover, Russia has for its protection the most modern and powerful WEAPONS and Armed forces, which can bring the whole world to its knees ...
    Glory to the Great Russia!

    Russia in the G8 is like in the fairy tale "The Wolf and the Seven Kids", and the word "kids" in this case is a verb.

    He has some kind of non-diplomatic slang. As if from a talk show, Solovyov or Skabeeva jumped out. I wouldn’t admit that the Russian Federation is just a former member of this organization, which could hardly answer its own exception.
    So no, you need to pile up a bunch of verbal white noise, and thus assert itself even against the background of a frank loss.

      Well, tell us, oh, a secret dedicated to this very thing, but WHY had to react to the exception?
      And about the loss - there is a tactic, but there is a strategy, judging by the fact that it appears slowly in the sources, the conclusions are far from so unambiguous, but there is still not enough information for final conclusions, let's wait.
