The US does not want to invite Russia to the G-7 summits




The administration of US President Joe Biden does not plan to invite Russia to join the group of “Big Seven” and restore the G8 format, as his predecessor Donald Trump has repeatedly done in the past.





This, as reported by Reuters, at a briefing on February 19, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.

“I don't think we will repeat the old invitations for Russia or make new ones,” she said.

Psaki clarified that the invitation to join the G7 should be made in partnership with the other participating countries-Japan, Germany, Great Britain, France, Italy, and Canada.

On February 19, the first summit of the leaders of the “Big Seven” countries was held — due to the coronavirus pandemic this year, the event was held in an online format. For Biden, this was the first international event since taking office.

At the meeting, the US president announced a decision to allocate $4 billion to help purchase CAVID-19 vaccines for 92 poor and developing countries through the international COVAX mechanism.

This money will be divided equally: to subsidize the purchase of vaccines and to expand the production and supply of vaccines over the next two years. At the same time, the first 500 million can be transferred in the very near future.
