Following the breakup of the USSR (Soviet Union) and the resignation of Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin was elected President of the Russian Soviet Federation Socialist Republic in 1993. "Russia calls for strict and consistent implementation of this plan", Putin stated.
Mrs May hopes to use the summit to avert a wider trade war, insisting she wants a "proportionate" response from the European Union to the "unjustified" United States tariffs.
President Trump on Saturday doubled down on his calls for Russian Federation to be reinstated to the G-7 group of nations, saying that the group would be more meaningful if that country could be brought back into the fold.
When he said, "It may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run", you have to wonder who he meant by "we".
USA president Donald Trump has injected fresh drama into an already tense meeting of the G7 nations as he called for Russian Federation to be reinstated.
Trump is not in favor of group negotiations and will leave the station of the summit before it ends.
Trump will skip out on G-7 meetings about climate change, clean energy and ocean protection. She said the two leaders exchanged pleasantries and briefly discussed trade.
Following a day after Trump's press conference, Vladmir Putin in the Qingdao SCO summit on Sunday said that such talks were welcome and "much needed" in the wake of the new arms race among countries.

In our small world, which has been made smaller with the internet and cell phones, we can't afford to go it alone. Trump said to reporters. "We'll see how it all works out".
Mr Trump retorted via Twitter: "Please tell Prime Minister Trudeau and President Macron that they are charging the US massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers".
His remarks follow a report that White House officials were working towards setting up a meeting.
President Trump doesn't want anything to do with that.
