The G-7 is a grouping of top seven industrialised countries of the world -- Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the US, Russia which was added into the group in 1998 was suspended last year after Moscow annexed Crimea.

The June 7-8 Summit of G-7 leaders in Bavaria would be held without Russia. US President Barack Obama would be leading the American delegation to the Summit wherein according to his close aides he would press for more sanctions on Russia for its alleged interference in Ukraine.

"We will affirm the importance of maintaining sanctions on Russia to incentivize full implementation of the Minsk agreement, and also to serve as a deterrent against further Russian aggression," said Ben Rhodes, the Deputy National Security Advisor.

"It's very important coming out of these G-7 meetings that the world is seen as speaking with one voice in support of those important consequences that have been imposed on Russia, and to demonstrate that Russia will continue to face those sanctions until a diplomatic solution is fully implemented," he added.
