Contacts fuckup in a new Gmail design

With the introduction of a new Gmail design you cannot access contacts quickly and you have to add yourself a shortcut to 9-dot menu (another stupidity by Google):

This will open the "new" Contacts screen in a separate tab.

However, you can search for a particular person using Gmail's omnibar, hit that small arrow and then select Edit contact details from context menu:

And then... bang! All your contacts groups gone, a dully "old" Contacts design and some more...

Lovely! And now, what... Sergey and Larry?

    I too am thoroughly frustrated. I need to delete some members in a group and I have no access to contacts. No way to edit them. Instructions say there is an edit button on the top right. There is NOT. Then, it said that if there isn't, you have an old version. I don't have an old version and their fix on that is to go to "old contacts". Where the Hell is old contacts?
