Britain's new prime minister has vowed to challenge Putin's regime at the G20 summit
Rishi Sunak is off to Bali this Sunday afternoon for the G20 summit of the world's largest economies. British officials were preparing for this meeting, believing that the Russian president would be there.
Sunak, along with other world leaders, was expected to condemn Putin to his face for his war in Ukraine. But last week, Moscow announced that Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov would go instead of Putin, so the words of anger will be directed at him, the BBC reports.
"This G20 summit will not be 'business as usual. We will challenge the Putin regime and expose their contempt for the kind of international cooperation and respect for sovereignty that the G20 forum represents," Sunak said in a speech before leaving for Indonesia.
While The Verkhovna Rada is preparing an appeal to exclude Russia from the G20
"The G20 summit in Indonesia will start soon. In this regard, the parliament is preparing an appeal to international partners to exclude the Russian Federation from the "Group of Twenty" (G20). The relevant resolution will be introduced and voted on in the Verkhovna Rada next week," Yaroslav Zheleznyak, a member of the "Voice" faction, wrote in Telegram.
Zheleznyak added that in 2014, after the annexation of Crimea, the Russian Federation was already expelled from the "Big Eight" (G8).
