The Group of 20 meeting in Bali started earlier Tuesday, and the conflict in Ukraine has already taken centerstage at the summit to Russia’s dismay.
The summit was addressed by Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Tuesday. He described what he called an “Ukrainian formula to peace” and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was among those present at the meeting.
Zelenskyy stated that “there are a number of solutions that can actually guarantee peace.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry stated Sunday that the G-20 Summit should be focused on global economic challenges and not security issues.
Two Polish citizens were killed and a chain reaction started around the world when missiles entered Poland. Poland claimed that the missile was Russian-made and contacted the Russian ambassador to get an explanation.
Volodymr Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian President, was quick to point fingers at Moscow, claiming that the strike was “a very important escalation of the war.”
According to the organization that oversees the export of Ukrainian agricultural products, 12 vessels have been approved for departure from the country.
Joint Coordination Center is a joint initiative of Russia, Ukraine, the United Nations, and Turkey. It stated that the vessels carry a total of 205.712 metric tons of grain and other products.
The ships will be headed for the Netherlands, France, Spain, Turkey, Romania, France and Bulgaria.
Russia has reacted angrily to international demands that it pay for the war damage it inflicted on Ukraine.
This comes just days after the UN General Assembly passed an resolution stating that Russia must face the consequences of their actions, including reparations.
General Assembly resolutions have symbolic weight but are not able to enforce compliance.
According to the Kremlin, it will work to prevent the West from seizing its international reserves in order to pay reparations.
Russia launched one of the most powerful missile attacks against Ukraine in its history, just days after it was forced to withdraw its troops from Kherson.
Officials said that at least one person had been killed in the attack on Kyiv, capital of Ukraine.
Strikes were held across the country, starting in Lviv in West Ukraine and ending in Chernihiv at the North.
The attacks occur as world leaders meet in Bali at the G20.
