Lavrov warmly received at the G20 summit

How Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov would behave at the G20 summit – and how he would be received in light of the Ukraine war – was eagerly awaited.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (72) arrived on Tuesday morning as one of the last guests at the opening of the G20 summit on the Indonesian island of Bali. Indonesian President Joko Widodo (61) welcomed a grinning Lavrov with a pat on the arm and a long handshake.

Due to Russia’s war against Ukraine, the eyes of the meeting of 20 leading industrialized and developing countries are mainly focused on Lavrov, who is participating instead of the head of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin (70).
