The Group of Seven (G7) is an association of economically developed countries, including Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Canada, the USA, France, and Japan. The main goals are to find solutions to global political and social problems. The organization existed in the "seven" format in 1976-1997. After the annexation of Russia, the association was renamed the Group of Eight. In March 2014, as a result of the events in Ukraine and the ensuing crisis in relations between the Russian Federation and the West, the organization decided to return to the G7 format.
