President Putin has not learned his lesson from the G8 experience. In 2014, Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine. The G8 canceled its summit in Sochi, Russia, and expelled Russia, shrinking the forum to become the G7.
Fast forward to 2022, and he has committed a similar offense by invading Ukraine. In a show of solidarity with Kyiv and to isolate Moscow, many world leaders want to exclude Russia from this year's G20 summit, scheduled to be held in Indonesia in October.
