Brussels: Determined to teach Russia a lesson in wake of its annexation of Crimea, the G7 leaders on Monday decided to remove Russia from the membership of Group of Eight, and planned the next summit of richest nations to be held at Brussels.

President of the European Council Herman van Rompuy tweeted that the G7 leaders wouldn`t participate in Sochi summit.

In a declaration in The Hague by G7 leaders, the group of Seven stated, “We, the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, the President of the European Council and the President of the European Commission met in The Hague to reaffirm our support for Ukraine’s sovereignty,
territorial integrity and independence”.
