THE HAGUE, Netherlands -

The Group of Seven major economies is moving the G-8 summit from Russia to Brussels — and excluding Russia, a senior diplomat told The Associated Press.
The move was in protest of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, the AP reported.
The wire service repotted that the diplomat spoke on condition of anonymity.
The summit was to be held in Russia’s Black Sea resort Sochi in June, AP reported.
