Russia may be kicked out of the G8 at the G7 meeting in The Hague, according to media reports.

      The West has imposed sanctions on Russian officials and businessmen with close ties to the Kremlin, as well as Bank Rossiya after Moscow incorporated Ukraine’s breakaway region of Crimea into Russia.

      Western leaders have indicated they are mulling possible exclusion of Russia from the G8 forum.

      The upcoming summit is likely to decide whether Russia will remain or forced to leave the format. Another option could be temporary suspension. Ukraine has been invited to the summit instead of Russia.

      Earlier, some Western leaders and Japan have announced plans to freeze military cooperation with Russia.

      The future of the G8 summit that was supposed to be held in Sochi later this year is uncertain.

      Nine Russian soldiers taking part in joint military exercises were expelled from Canada.

      Earlier, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that all planned bilateral activities between the Canadian Armed Forces and the Russian military of the Russian Federation were suspended, including exercises such as NORAD's Exercise Vigilant Eagle.
