Russia thrown out of powerful G8 group
The other seven members of the group had already suspended preparations for a G-8 summit that Russia is scheduled to host in June in Sochi.
France's Laurent Fabius went further Tuesday, saying on Europe-1 radio that "concerning the G-8 ... we decided to suspend Russia's participation, and it is envisaged that all the other countries, the seven leading countries, will unite without Russia."
Fabius did not give further details.
The U.S. and European Union on Tuesday announced new sanctions against Russia over its actions in the Crimean Peninsula.

Well since the west seem to have abandoned their previous humanitarian policies, i.e. backing a violently seized government in Ukraine and ignoring the democratic voice of Crimea, this is clearly not about human rights or crusading for democracy. Losing your seat in a council not performing it's own duty while contradicting it's long established policies by condemning your legal actions, well that is no big deal to me. The most likely scenario is that for the first time the US has a chance at getting a military base in a country bordering Russia and they will go to any lengths to make it happen, not to mention the wealth of natural resources to be controlled. This is just the first leg of the propaganda campaign to try to get Russia to concede their decision to recognise Crimea's democratic decision. I consider it in the best interests of the people, considering the state of Ukraine's leadership, so i hope he stands his ground and the people are allowed to live as they wish
