Russia is ready to accept the G20 statement condemning the war

Nov 14, 2022

Russia is apparently ready to accept that the final declaration of the G20 summit will include a passage condemning the war against Ukraine.

The German news agency DPA has learned about this.

According to a Western diplomat, the Russian attack is clearly described in the declaration as a war, not as a special military operation, as Kremlin head Vladimir Putin says.

"Russia's endorsement of the draft text is seen as a possible sign that Moscow can no longer count on even the support of its partner China in the G20 group when it comes to Ukraine," the report said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov previously said Russia would make concessions. Putin's representative at the summit said the final declaration would be adopted.
