Russian President Vladimir Putin accepted Indonesia's invitation to participate in the G20 summit in Indonesia. This was reported by TASS, referring to the assistant to the head of the Kremlin Yuri Ushakov.
"Yes, we confirmed that our participation is envisaged", — he said.
At the same time, Ushakov could not accurately answer the question of whether Putin would personally take part in this event or would participate via videoconference.
"I don't know, they are still inviting in in-person format, but there is still a lot of time, I hope that the pandemic will allow this important forum to be held in in-person format, but I'm just afraid to guess", — he said.
Earlier, BAGNET reported that US President Joe Biden spoke for exclusion of Russia from G20. He noted that the issue of exclusion of the Russian Federation has already been discussed, but not all countries participating in the format agree with this.
Indonesia is chairing the G20 this year. The 17th G20 Leaders' Meeting will be held in Bali in this November.
