Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the G20 summit in India a success and said that due to the consolidated position of countries in the global south, Russia was able to ensure that the G20 agenda was not overshadowed by the conflict in Ukraine.
The G20 adopted a leaders’ statement on Saturday (9) that avoided condemning Russia for the war in Ukraine, but called on all states not to use force to seize territory.

Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine left tens of thousands dead, displaced millions and caused economic turmoil around the world. Moscow, which claims to be conducting a “special military operation” in the country, denies committing any atrocities.
Lavrov also said that Russia is willing to rejoin the Black Sea grain deal as soon as its conditions are met.
Russia pulled out of the deal in July, a year after it was brokered by the United Nations and Turkey, complaining that its own food and fertilizer exports were facing obstacles and that insufficient Ukrainian grain was going to countries in need. .
Lavrov said Russia values the United Nations’ attempts to facilitate grain negotiations, but called it “talks only with the West.”
