Russia-Ukraine war live news: G20 leaders deplore Russian aggression ‘in strongest terms’ | Ukraine

G20 leaders declaration divided over Russia

Patrick Wintour

A draft declaration from G20 leaders said, “Most members strongly condemned the war in Ukraine,” demanding Russia’s “complete and unconditional withdrawal” from its neighbor’s territory.

The reference to war is a rejection of Russia’s claim that it is involved in a “special military operation”.

But it also said, “there were other views and different assessments of the situation and sanctions,” reflecting the divisions among G-20 states over Russia.

The declaration warns that “the use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is inadmissible. The peaceful resolution of conflicts, efforts to address crises, as well as diplomacy and dialogue, are vital. Today’s era must not be of war.”

The Ukraine war, the statement stressed “is causing immense human suffering and exacerbating existing fragilities in the global economy — constraining growth, increasing inflation, disrupting supply chains, heightening energy and food insecurity, and elevating financial stability risks”.

The draft did, however, note that, “There were other views and different assessments of the situation and sanctions.”

On Tuesday, Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, was quoted by Russia’s Tass news agency as saying “the West added the phrase ‘many delegations condemned Russia,’ [but] we noted that alternative views were also outlined.”

He left Indonesia later in the day.

A joint G20 communique would usually be agreed by all parties, but as agreement appeared unlikely, the summits hosts – Indonesia – had instead been pushing for a leaders’ declaration.

Nato and global leaders are set to meet on Wednesday after a Russian-made rocket fell on Nato member Poland and killed two people, raising concerns that the Ukraine conflict could spill over its borders.

A deliberate attack on a Nato member could in theory lead to the invocation of the alliance’s article 5, which states that an attack on one member of the military alliance is considered an attack against all. But the Nato treaty is highly unlikely to be triggered by an accidental attack.

  • Nato ministers are preparing to gather on Wednesday at the request of the Polish government. The meeting is set to be convened under article 4 of the Nato treaty, which allows for all Nato allies to be brought together when the “territorial integrity, political independence or security” of any member has been threatened.

  • A deliberate attack on a Nato member could in theory lead to the invocation of the alliance’s article 5, which states that an attack on one member of the military alliance is considered an attack against all. But the Nato treaty is highly unlikely to be triggered by an accidental attack.

  • The White House said it could not confirm reports coming out of Poland and was working with the Polish government to gather more information. As day broke in Bali in Indonesia, where the G20 meeting is being held, US president Joe Biden talked by phone to Duda.

  • Biden offered Duda “full support for and assistance with Poland’s investigation”. Biden also “reaffirmed the United States’ ironclad commitment to Nato” during a telephone call on Wednesday.

  • The Russian defence ministry in a statement denied its missiles crossed into Poland, calling the reports a “deliberate provocation”. “The statements of the Polish media and officials about the alleged fall of ‘Russian’ missiles in the area of Przewodów is a deliberate provocation in order to escalate the situation. No strikes on targets near the Ukrainian-Polish state border were made by Russian rockets.”

  • Some analysts said they believed photographs of missile debris at the scene showed a Ukrainian S-300 air defence system that would have been engaged in shooting down a Russian missile, but it was not possible to corroborate those reports.

  • Russia launched waves of missile strikes across Ukraine on Wednesday as G20 leaders met in Bali. Ukraine’s authorities said it was another planned attack aimed at the country’s energy infrastructure facilities. In his Wednesday evening address, Zelenskiy said “a total of 90 missiles” hit Ukraine. Seven million homes were left without power. The deputy head of the presidential administration, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, wrote on Telegram that the energy situation across Ukraine was “critical” as a result.

  • Earlier Zelenskiy, addressing the G20 by video link, called on the leaders to support Ukraine to end the war on its terms – the primary one being that Russian troops leave all of Ukraine, including the areas it occupied in 2014. Zelenskiy called for an international conference to “cement key element of the postwar security architecture” and prevent a recurrence of “Russian aggression”.

  • The Kremlin spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, said that Zelenskiy’s statement that there will be no “Minsk-3” deal to end the fighting in Ukraine confirms that Kyiv is not interested in holding peace talks with Moscow.

Key events

International summits like the G20 traditionally end in a jointly issued communique.

It’s important to note that the statement coming from leaders gathered in Bali is a draft “declaration” not a “communique.”

According to the Guardian’s diplomatic editor Patrick Wintour, the distinction between the two is that a communique is agreed by all sides, while a declaration is an implicit admission that not all countries present could agree.

As a result, the declaration in Bali includes an unusual reference to a “majority” of G20 members agreeing to the wording on the war in Ukraine.

Patrick adds:

Whether a communique or a declaration, these statements are not binding on member states, but are crafted to secure maximum agreement.

G20 leaders declaration divided over Russia

A draft declaration from G20 leaders said, “Most members strongly condemned the war in Ukraine,” demanding Russia’s “complete and unconditional withdrawal” from its neighbor’s territory.

The reference to war is a rejection of Russia’s claim that it is involved in a “special military operation”.

But it also said, “there were other views and different assessments of the situation and sanctions,” reflecting the divisions among G-20 states over Russia.

The declaration warns that “the use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is inadmissible. The peaceful resolution of conflicts, efforts to address crises, as well as diplomacy and dialogue, are vital. Today’s era must not be of war.”

The Ukraine war, the statement stressed “is causing immense human suffering and exacerbating existing fragilities in the global economy — constraining growth, increasing inflation, disrupting supply chains, heightening energy and food insecurity, and elevating financial stability risks”.

The draft did, however, note that, “There were other views and different assessments of the situation and sanctions.”

On Tuesday, Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, was quoted by Russia’s Tass news agency as saying “the West added the phrase ‘many delegations condemned Russia,’ [but] we noted that alternative views were also outlined.”

He left Indonesia later in the day.

Draft G20 leaders declaration ‘deplores in strongest terms Russian aggression against Ukraine’

A draft declaration from G20 leaders says it’s essential to uphold international law and the multilateral system that safeguards peace, at the close of the summit in Bali.

The leaders said they “deplore in the strongest terms Russian aggression against Ukraine”.

It’s not clear whether this draft declaration was agreed by all members, but as Russia is a member of the G20, it appears unlikely.

The declaration said most members condemned the war but “there were other views”.

A joint G20 communique would usually be agreed by all parties, but as agreement appeared unlikely, the summit hosts – Indonesia – had instead been pushing for a leaders’ declaration.

The declaration also said members’ central banks would continue to appropriately calibrate the pace of monetary policy tightening.

A G20 leaders declaration has been adopted, according to several diplomatic sources speaking to Reuters.

As at other recent international forums, the United States and its allies have been pushing for a statement condemning Russia’s war in Ukraine.

A joint G20 communique, which would need to be agreed by all parties, had therefore appeared unlikely this year, which is why Indonesia has instead been pushing for a leaders’ declaration.

Turkey’s president says he takes Russian missile denial seriously

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said he took Russian denials of involvement in the attack seriously adding it was likely to be a technical error.

Speaking at the G20 summit in Bali, he said “I have met with the German chancellor Olaf Scholz. There is a general impression that this missile is not Russian made and this declaration paves the way to certain facts, so we should not insist that this missile was launched from Russia. This would be a provocation.”

He added “peace can only be established through dialogue and we want to establish dialogue”.

CIA Director in Kyiv meets with president Zelenskiy

CIA Director Bill Burns is in the Ukrainian capital to meet with president Volodymyr Zelenskiy and his intelligence counterparts, according to a US official.

Burns was safely in the US embassy during Russian missile strikes in Kyiv.

His trip comes on the heels of a Monday meeting in Turkey with his Russian intelligence counterpart, Sergey Naryshkin – and it is the second known time in less than a month that the CIA director has visited Kyiv.

According to the US official, Burns “discussed the warning he delivered to the head of Russia’s SVR not to use nuclear weapons and reinforced the US commitment to provide support to Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression.”

US official suggests the missile that hit Poland was fired by Ukrainian forces at an incoming Russian missile – AP

The Associated Press news agency is reporting that initial findings suggest the missile that hit Poland was fired by Ukrainian forces at an incoming Russian missile, citing US officials.

The Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs initially described the missile as “Russian-made”, but as the Guardian’s diplomatic editor Patrick Wintour has reported, that could include S-300 ground to air missiles in the possession of Ukraine.

Earlier, Joe Biden was asked if the missile was fired from Russia. He said, “there is preliminary information that contests that. I don’t want to say that until we completely investigate. But it is unlikely in the minds [sic] of its trajectory that it was fired from Russia.”

US president Joe Biden and his British counterpart, Rishi Sunakhave spoken to reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine.

“We’re going to continue to support Ukraine as long as Russia continues their aggression,” Biden reportedly told Sunak, according to a White House press pool report.

“I’m glad we’re on the same page in terms of supporting Ukraine,” he added.

In response, Sunak said the partnership between the US and the UK is “unique” and “enduring” and he felt proud to have stewardship of it.

The pair agreed that the series of recent Russian strikes on Ukraine were “barbaric”.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said he has spoken with Polish president Andrzej Duda and expressed his condolences to him and his citizens after blasts near Poland’s border with Ukraine.

A statement released on Wednesday read:

This is a terrible incident and it is necessary to carefully clarify how it came about.”

Poland has called the blasts a strike by a Russian-made projectile, while Russia has denied the claim.

France urges caution, says missile type may not identify its origin

France has urged for the “utmost caution” on any assessment of the origin of the missile that landed on Nato member Poland, warning “many countries have the same kind of weapons, so identifying the type of missile won’t necessarily identify who is behind it”.

Agence France-Presse quotes a French presidency official as saying:

It’s logical that we approach the question with utmost caution… Many countries have the same kind of weapons, so identifying the type of missile won’t necessarily identify who is behind it.”

A Nato aircraft flying above Polish airspace on Tuesday reportedly tracked the missile that landed in its territory, an alliance military official told CNN on Tuesday.

Intel with the radar tracks [of the missile] was provided to Nato and Poland,” the Nato military official added.

The aircraft flying above Poland on Tuesday was monitoring events in Ukraine, according to the broadcaster. Nato aircraft have been conducting regular surveillance around Ukraine since the Russian invasion began.

The Nato official did not say who launched the missile that was tracked landing in Poland, nor where it was fired from.

So what crashed in the village of Przewodów, Poland today?

With the cooperation of @blueboy1969 we analyzed the available photos of fragments and came to a clear conclusion that they belong to the 48D6 motor of the 5V55-series missile of the S-300 AD system- a Ukrainian one. pic.twitter.com/f0Ex3USLN8

Detailed call with @SecBlinken on Russian missile terror — its scale, aims, consequences. I stressed the response to what happened in Poland must be stiff and principled. Grateful for affirming the US will double down on recovering our energy system, together with G7 and the EU.
