AFP , Sunday 2 Mar 2014

Britain has pulled out of this week's preparatory meetings for the G8 summit in Sochi in June in protest at Russia's involvement in the Ukraine crisis, Foreign Secretary William Hague said Sunday.

"The UK will join other G8 countries this week in suspending our cooperation under the G8, which Russia chairs this year, including meetings this week for the preparation of the G8 summit," Hague told reporters shortly before flying to Kiev.
