DEAR FRIENDS, IT DIDN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY….
Russia would have gladly cooperated and become a member of the Western community.
Offered no responses to their continual questing to be accepted, below is the final result.
Although no one mentions it, we now have a bi-polar world again––both armed to the teeth militarily.This was and is still needless.
Will we ever learn????

Russian President Vladimir Putin will host two important international summits, one of the BRICS group on July 8-9 and the other of Shanghai Cooperation Organizations members on July 9-10.
For public relations, this will allow him to send a message to the world that despite the rupture with Europe and a new “standoff” with the United States, Russia is anything but isolated.
With leaders of China, India, Brazil, Pakistan, South Africa, Iran and several other countries in attendance, together representing roughly half of the world’s population, Putin will be able to project an image of Russia joining the global “new wave” of non-Western countries raising their profile and expanding their role in the world.
