In 2014, a member of the g8 (now g7) kicked russia out of the g8 because of the "Crimea incident". However, it may be difficult to kick russia out of the g20 this time. In addition to china's opposition, indonesia, the presidency of this year's g20, also believes that every country has the right to express its opinion on related issues, including the situation in ukraine, implying that russia also has the right to participate in the g20. In fact, the indonesian government still follows past norms and invited putin to go to indonesia to participate in the g20 summit in october. In the "Joint statement" of the g7 summit , they jointly condemned russia's aggressive military actions against ukraine, attacking the ukrainian people logo design and the infrastructure of people's livelihood. The g7 also mentioned that they will take action to prevent sanctioned russian individuals and entities from circumventing the impact of sanctions, and are ready to take further sanctions. In addition, the statement also warned russia not to use any chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. The "Joint statement" praised ukraine's neighbors for welcoming ukrainian refugees, and said they would further reduce their dependence on russian energy and work together on this issue. The g7 will also ensure other alternative, stable energy supplies. In addition, the g7 called on oil and gas producing countries to have a sense of responsibility and increase production to supply the international market. In particular, the statement pointed to the pivotal role of the organization of petroleum exporting countries (opec) on the issue.
