Odds are Russia is not going to re-join the G7 in the visible future. Heiko Maas, the German Foreign Minister said that as quoted by Deutsche Welle.

'Currently, it is not even on the agenda; the fact that Russia is not here is tied to the annexation of Crimea in breach of the international law... Lately, Russia became a complicated partner', he said, cited by the German news agency. 

Maas expressed hope that Germany will be able to settle the political dialogue with Russia and urged to solve the Syrian conflict by the means of diplomacy.  

At the Sunday G7 ministerial meeting in Toronto, Ukraine was invited for the first time in its history. The event featured discussions about the latest developments in Crimea and Donbas.
