Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes that there will be no big harm if the G-8 Summit planned for June in Sochi does not take place.

“The G8 is an informal club, no one gives out membership cards and no one can oust anyone by default. If the West believes that this format has exhausted itself, so be it. We will not be clinging to it. We don’t see any tragedy if the G8 doesn’t meet. Maybe as a sort of experiment we can wait one or one and a half years and see how we survive without it”, Lavrov commented, cited by Euronews.
