Kremlin doesn’t rule out Putin attending G20 summit in India

The Kremlin stated that it has not ruled out the possibility of Russian President Vladimir Putin attending the G20 summit in New Delhi, which will take place on September 9–10.

Putin has yet to travel beyond the borders of the former Soviet Union since sending his armed forces into Ukraine in February last year, and missed November’s G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia.

Asked whether Putin might attend the Delhi summit, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters:

“It can’t be ruled out. Russia continues to participate fully in the G20 framework. It intends to continue to do that. But no decision has been made yet.”
