Moscow expelled from G8 talks after annexing Crimean region

The world's leading industrialized nations met without Russia for the first time in 17 years on Wednesday, leaving Russian President Vladimir Putin out of the talks in retaliation for Russia's stance on the Ukraine crisis and its annexation of Crimea.

The two-day Group of Seven summit, taking place in Brussels rather than the previously planned Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi, will cover foreign policy, economics, trade and energy security.
