Zelenskyy May Refuse to Participate in the G20

The president spoke with Joko Widodo about the upcoming summit and Putin's participation

On November 15-16, the summit of the presidents of the G20 states will be held in Bali. The president of the alliance, Joko Widodo, despite calls from Joe Biden not to invite Putin, still did it. For the sake of justice, the US president offered to invite Zelenskyy. Both presidents of the warring countries accepted the invitation.

Nevertheless, like Lavrov in April, nobody is waiting for Putin at the summit. Joe Biden said that he does not see the point in dialogue with the president of Russia, Australian prime minister Anthony Albanese added that the tyrant is waiting for an "unfriendly reception" at the G20.
On November 3, in a briefing with the president of Greece, Katerina Sakellaropoulou, resident Zelenskyy said that he would not participate in the summit if Russia took part in it.

"I do not follow the participation of others in the G20 summit. My personal position and position was that if the leader of the Russian Federation will participate, then Ukraine will not. Let's see how it will be in the future," Zelenskyy.

The president also held telephone talks with Joko Widodo.

"Discussed with Indonesian president Joko Widodo the importance of continuing the Grain Initiative. Ukraine is ready to continue to be a guarantor of global food security. Preparation for the G20 summit was a separate topic of our conversation."

We remind you that Joko Widodo visited Ukraine in June.
