Lavrov fled from the G20 summit before it was over
Before the conclusion of the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia, and the official adoption of the final declaration, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov left the meeting
This information was spread by Kremlin propaganda.
The statement said: "Lavrov left Bali after completing his work at the G20 conference".
Although the reason for the Russian foreign minister's rush was not made clear, everything became clear after a new Russian missile attack on Ukraine's civilian infrastructure.
An hour after his departure, Russia began a massive shelling of the Ukrainian energy system.
We shall remind you that today the occupiers carried out one of the most massive missile strikes on the territory of Ukraine, there are fatalities. Not only Ukrainians, but also our neighbours - residents of Moldova - were left without electricity supply.
According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the occupiers fired 85 missiles on Ukraine today - most of them hit energy infrastructure facilities. However, there is also destruction of residential buildings, like in Kiev in Pechersk. One resident is already known to have died.
"Take the side of the people, not the war criminals": Kuleba urged the G20 to respond to Russia's missile terror.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba circulated the call on Twitter. He stressed that "appeals to both sides should be avoided.
Verkhovna Rada deputy head Olena Kondratyuk called for expelling Russia from the G20 summit:
Is russia really ready for peace - this is the question being asked now on the sidelines of the G20 summit. here is the answer... another rf terrorist attack and violence against Ukrainian civilians. so it is already clear that peace is only possible under the Ukrainian formula presented by the Ukrainian president at the summit in Indonesia, and nothing else.
As a reminder, during a speech at the G20, President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine would not agree to any Minsk-3, which Russia would violate as soon as it was concluded.
The reaction of the Kremlin leaders was expected - they all continued to promote the narrative that Ukraine was dragging out the war and only Russia wanted a peaceful solution to the conflict.
Lavrov said that the Ukrainian side was putting forward conditions that were unrealistic and inadequate in this situation
We shall remind you that Indonesia will host the G20 summit on 15-16 November 2022.
