Moscow, Aug 25 (PTI) Russian President Vladimir Putin will not personally attend the G20 summit to
be held in New Delhi on September 9-10, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced here on
Friday.
”No, the president has no such plans,” the official Tass news agency quoted the Kremlin spokesman
as saying.
The format of Putin’s participation would be determined later, Peskov said.
Putin did not personally attend the just-concluded BRICS Summit in Johannesburg. He was
represented by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
President Putin decided against attending the first in-person BRICS summit after Covid-19 as the
International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant for him in March over an alleged scheme
to deport Ukrainian children to Russia.
South Africa is an ICC signatory and was expected to help in Putin’s arrest if he was present in the
country.
