The Telegraph: EU and UK plan to boycott Russian delegation at G20 summit

The European Union and United Kingdom are planning to boycott the Russian delegation at the G20 summit, which will take place in Bali, Indonesia, on 15-16 November, The Telegraph reports.

European officials tell the newspaper that they will do “everything possible” to isolate Russia during the summit. Spokesperson for the EU’s foreign affairs service also says that the international community wants to show what it “thinks about all these crimes, atrocities, and illegal actions by Russia”, The Telegraph reports.

“That means also discouraging them from meeting Lavrov or from meeting anyone who is leading the Russian delegation or have people walk out when Russia stands to speak,” the spokesperson adds.

On 10 November, press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov declared that Vladimir Putin would not be attending the summit. According to Peskov, Putin personally decided not to go to the summit in person. The Russian delegation will be headed by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky will take part in the summit via video link. In the past, Zelensky said that he would not participate in the summit if Putin were present.
