The Ukrainian foreign ministry expressed its dissatisfaction with the joint declaration made by the G20 group of countries regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine. They criticized the text for failing to mention Russia and stated that the declaration was “nothing to be proud of.”
According to foreign ministry spokesperson Oleg Nikolenko, the absence of the Ukrainian perspective hindered the participants’ understanding of the situation. Nikolenko took to Facebook to emphasize that the inclusion of Ukraine in the G20 meeting would have facilitated a better comprehension of the ongoing crisis. The ministry’s remarks highlight the need for broader recognition and acknowledgment of the Russian aggression.
