Russia might be invited to participate in the next G7 summit. However, it could only be present as a guest. This was stated by French President Emmanuel Macron, as reported by Interfax-Ukraine.

It is stated that Russia might be invited to the summit by the country that would organize it.

"The host country can invite people, but as guests only," said Emmanuel Macron.
 
U.S. President Donald Trump supported the return of Russia to G7 on the eve of the next summit, which was held from August 24 to 26 in French Biarritz.

President of Ukraine Zelensky believes that until the Russian Federation returns Crimea and ceases hostilities in Donbas, there can be no talk of her returning to the ranks of the G7 countries.

Steffen Seibert, the spokesman for the German government, said Germany opposed Russia's return to the G7.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also opposed the return of Russia to a number of G7 countries.

Zelensky also phoned the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, who assured the Ukrainian president that the EU’s common position on solidarity with Ukraine was unchanged and promised that he would defend this position during the summit on August 24-26 in France.

Russia was expelled from the G8 club after the annexation of Crimea in 2014.
