According to Bloomberg, today is one of the most important conferences of recent decades. To discuss measures and steps to help Ukraine, president Joe Biden convened representatives of the G7 countries, NATO and the European Union. The exact composition of the participants is still unknown since, according to an authoritative publication, the upcoming video call was announced on condition of anonymity. According to an anonymous Bloomberg source, videoconferences about Ukraine have been held before. Specifically, this meeting will be held during the upcoming 7 months of Russia's war against Ukraine.
"Biden has sought to maintain unity in backing Ukraine. His conversation with the other leaders comes in a week when the UK has sworn in a new leader, Liz Truss, who has positioned herself as a hawk in the confrontation with Russia," Bloomberg.
The call will take place as Ukrainians fight for freedom and democracy across Europe, and Putin is in the process of preparing for his upcoming meeting with Xi Jinping. According to the Russian ambassador to China, Andrey Denisov, the meeting between Putin and the Chinese leader will occur on September 15-16 as part of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit. According to Indonesian president Joko Widodo, Putin and Xi Jinping also plan to participate in the G20 summit, although they do not want to see Putin there. It can be said that the light rehearsal form of Putin's meeting at the G20 summit was worked out by Lavrov at the summit in July.
Jens Stoltenberg told the Financial Times on September 7 that the war was "entering a critical phase" and warned that the coming winter would be harsh and that "energy cuts, disruptions and perhaps even civil unrest."
