Putin won’t attend G20 summit in person, official says – POLITICO

Russian President Vladimir Putin won’t travel to Bali to participate in next week’s G20 summit, Moscow’s embassy to Indonesia confirmed overnight on Thursday.

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will lead the Russian delegation instead, the Russian Embassy’s chief of protocol Yulia Tomskaya told AFP. “President Putin’s program is still being worked out, he could participate virtually,” she added.

The confirmation that Putin won’t be traveling to the G20 comes after months of speculation about the president’s plans for the summit — and amid news on Wednesday that the Kremlin was pulling its troops out of Kherson, the only regional Ukrainian capital Russian troops managed to capture since their full-scale invasion began in February.
