Russia was condemned for aggression against Ukraine at the G20 summit

Feb 22, 2024

At the G20 meeting in Brazil, Western foreign ministers condemned Russia for its invasion of Ukraine.

This was reported by Reuters.

"Russia must be made to pay for its aggression," British Foreign Minister David Cameron told the closed session, according to his office.

Norwegian Minister Espen Barth Eide told reporters that Lavrov calmly responded to Cameron's remarks with a "set of alternative facts" about the events in Ukraine.

"We have to support Ukraine until it emerges as a free and independent sovereign country without another army on its soil," the Norwegian foreign minister said in his speech at the meeting.

Senior diplomats from the United States, Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, and France made similar remarks on the first day of the two-day meeting. 

The meeting was intended to prepare the agenda for the G20 summit in November.

Brazil, which holds this year's G20 presidency, opened the foreign ministers' meeting by accusing the UN and other multinational organizations of failing to stop conflicts that kill innocent people.

The nineteenth meeting of the G20 leaders will be held on November 18-19, 2024 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
