During a meeting in Bali, diplomats from the G20 countries could not find a common language regarding Russia's war in Ukraine and agree on how to deal with its global consequences, according to the Associated Press.

< p>The diplomats did not agree on the final communiqué and did not even take the traditional group photo.

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, for the first time since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, were in the same room, defiantly ignoring each other.

In particular, Lavrov left the meeting at least twice. It was the first time that his German colleague Annalena Berbock spoke at the opening of the meeting. According to one Western diplomat, for the second time, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry left the meeting room before Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba was due to deliver a video message.
