(Worthy News) - The House signaled its opposition Tuesday to allowing Russia to resume attending summits of the Group of Seven nations.

Russia had been invited to attend the gathering of the world’s most advanced economies since 1997. It was suspended in 2014 following its invasion of Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
