89 percent of Germans want Russia to be back in the G8 format.
The poll was being held by German n-tv news channel, an affiliate network of CNN on its teletext pages.
The G7 members — Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United States and Canada brought Russia into their club in 1998.
However in March of 2014 they suspended its membership due souring relations with Ukraine.
Since then, there have been lots of discussions with some politicians and entrepreneurs claiming that the refusal to invite Russia is a "missed opportunity" to set up a constructive dialogue in a number of conflicts.
