The Kremlin announced that President Putin will be addressing an upcoming virtual G20 summit to outline Russia’s perspective on the “deeply unstable world situation.” This address will provide an opportunity for Putin to share Russia’s views on global issues and engage with Western leaders, marking the first event in a long time to include both Putin and Western leaders.
The G20 virtual summit is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, and Putin will participate via video link in a discussion about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as part of the BRICS bloc of nations summit on Tuesday.
