Putin’s “agenda” prevents him from leaving Russia to go to the G-20

The Kremlin confirmed Friday that Vladimir Putin will not attend the G20 summit in Indonesia next week because his schedule does not allow it, and that absence is seen as a sign of isolation given the full military intervention in Ukraine.

“This decision (not to attend) was taken by the head of state himself, and it is linked to his schedule and the necessity of his presence in Russia,” said Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Peskov explained that Vladimir Putin did not plan to send a video message to the G20 participants either.

The Kremlin had indicated the day before that Moscow’s delegation to Indonesia would be led by Russia’s top diplomat, Sergey Lavrov, who is also scheduled to attend the Association of South Asian Nations summit this weekend. Southeast (ASEAN) in Cambodia.

The announcement of Vladimir Putin’s absence came after several months of uncertainty over the Russian president’s visit to the G20 Summit of Heads of State and Government, organized by Indonesia on November 15-16.

This absence from the most important gathering of world leaders since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic illustrates Moscow’s growing isolation on the international scene due to the entry of its troops into Ukraine at the end of February.
