The G7 will not allow Putin to take part in their meetings but will expect him to stand as one with them and the new Ukrainian leader on Friday. Putin has already said he has no plans to meet Poroshenko Friday.
There is a G8 group which used to include Putin and was due to meet but the other children, sorry world leaders, will not take part until the Ukrainian crisis is resolved.
But Friday should be about marking the human tragedy of war and the extraordinary efforts of those soldiers who were part of the D Day landings, not playing politics.
Possibly rubbing salt into Putin's wounds will the presence of Prince Charles who recently, reportedly, compared Putin to Hitler.

According to the Telegraph "It's an important opportunity... to set out the importance of a dialogue between the Russian government and the new Ukrainian government following the presidential elections," said a Downing Street spokesman." But surely a better opportunity and one more fitting would be at the G7 meeting Thursday?
I imagine positioning all of these puffed up personalities will be difficult.
So many deals done behind closed doors. So many lives put at risk by the elite, a small number of people playing the world's puppet masters.
Expensive meetings, wasting public money, time and effort happen all the time. Some may prove useful but many are only useful to those taking part and a select few.
The 2014 meeting of the Bilderberg Group – a secretive organization of global power brokers – took place last week in Denmark. Those who take part, or have taken part, continue telling we the little people that the Bilderberg group is nothing but a business body working toward a safer more prosperous world. We the little people, as one, cry bunkum.
Want to see how the Bilderberg group describe themselves online?
Founded in 1954, Bilderberg is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America.
That however leads to people making up their own minds about this secretive organization and more often than not crying foul.

As Cameron prepares to corner Putin during the D Day commemorations you have to ask why is Putin excluded from the fold of Europe? His early exclusion from world leader meetings is not easily explained by the Ukraine crisis. Yes leaders can say they wanted to send Russia a stark message but why so soon?
Surely it is better to have a person in the room if you want to persuade them to change their position. However, if you have your own agenda excluding Putin may seem the best option.
News on the Ukraine crisis may be less headline making these days but the crisis continues. If there is no resolution before winter approaches expect a flurry of activity. We Brits wanted to reduce our energy bills but we will not want to do by having no gas or electricity supply.
As usual the part America is playing in all of this appears to be stirring the pot with a big wooden spoon. They hardly trade with Russia anyways and will lose little if the cold war freeze returns. If the situation worsens we in Europe will be the big losers. Countries such as Greece and Spain already suffering strict austerity measures implemented by EU leaders. Those same leaders who are prepared to throw a great deal of money at the Ukraine in order to fulfil their own agenda.
Could that be little less than putting Russia back in its place?
We all have an opinion on the Ukrainian crisis. The official media line seems to be blaming Russia for increased tensions and rebel activities in parts of the Ukraine. However Russia has shown restraint by ignoring rebel please for military support.
How much longer the status quo will be maintained though is impossible to guess.
