The foreign ministry said it hoped the summit would help establish a “multipolar” world – a term often used by Putin to criticize Western dominance of world affairs.

Russia’s presence at the G20 summit has drawn criticism from Western countries and Ukraine, which has called for Putin to be banned from the meeting.

Russian and Indonesian officials said today that Putin will not attend the summit in person, but may participate via video conference. The head of the Russian delegation in Bali will be Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Earlier today, Recep Tayyip Erdogan praised Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying they have a relationship of trust, respect and solidarity.

“We could not have taken this step if there was no trust between us,” the Turkish head of state said when asked by a reporter how he was able to convince Putin to rejoin the deal, which is necessary for exports to continue. agricultural products from Ukraine.

“The trust and respect between us encourages us to take this kind of step. That’s how things have worked so far. Solidarity between us, in areas such as nuclear energy, (…) initiatives in the defense industry, foster respect between us,” he said.
