Russia came out the winner of this year's G7 summit despite being kicked out, and Trump looked like 'Putin's puppet'

- This year's G7 summit in France yielded little progress on many of the most pressing issues facing the global community.
- But there was one country that came away with significant gains: Russia.
- Russia was expelled from the G8 after it annexed Crimea five years ago. Since then, it has done little to make up for its actions; in fact, Russia has stepped up its aggression against Ukraine, the US, the UK, and other countries.
- So it stunned world leaders when President Donald Trump went to bat for Russia during the G7 summit and aggressively lobbied for its readmittance to the group.
