G20 is made up of the 20 world’s biggest economies, which includes the United States, Russia, Germany, India, the United Kingdom, China, Japan, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Canada etc.
Most Western leaders have condemned Putin’s actions for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The UK, US and Germany have all condemned the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and have imposed “killer” sanctions on Russia.
However, China has not condemned the actions of their close ally Russia, rather, they want to stay ‘stay on the fence” while they help resolve issues.

“It will depend on many things but so far, the intention is to come. Of course the expulsion of Russia from this kind of forum will not help these economic problems to be resolved. On the contrary, without Russia, it would difficult. We really hope that the Indonesian government will not give in to the horrible pressure that is being applied to not only Indonesia but so many countries in the world by the West” Vorobiava said
