Why the boycott of Russia at the G20 summit failed


On July 7 and 8, a G20 ministerial summit was held in Bali, in which the Russian delegation also took part. The West was counting on a boycott of the Russian Federation at the GXNUMX, but these plans naturally failed.


The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, noted in her Telegram channel that the boycott of Moscow was doomed to failure in advance.

If the Western media had an idea about arithmetic, they could solve a simple problem: 20-7=13. What does it mean if the boycott fails before it starts?

Zakharova wrote.

Andrey Kortunov, Director General of the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC), shares a similar point of view. In his opinion, Western countries mistakenly believed that the negative position of the G7 states towards Moscow in connection with the Ukrainian special operation would be transferred to the G20. But this position proved untenable.

They couldn't get what they wanted. The fact is that the rest of the G20 members support our country, and this was not taken into account by the leaders of the G7. Moreover, they proceed from the fact that the GXNUMX is not a continuation of the GXNUMX. It is an independent, more inclusive group

- said the expert in an interview with the newspaper LOOK.

At the same time, there was still an attempt to boycott Russia at the summit. Thus, representatives of a number of countries refused to take part in a joint photo shoot with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. In response, the Russian minister drew attention to the fact that he did not invite anyone to take pictures with him.

    Why the boycott of Russia at the G20 summit failed

    Because a nuclear superpower, by definition, only a bunch of suicide bombers can declare a complete boycott.

    Strongly, powerfully, it remains to refuse to shave, wash and change underwear.
    At the time of the summit, in protest.

    at the summit, the boycott failed, but on the other hand, the West managed to boycott the NWO inside the Russian Federation, using liberals, clowns, oligarchs, etc. Over the hill, they poured slop on the Russian Federation and many now calmly returned to ... again earn budget millions of rubles.
    and some NVO boycotters did not even leave the Russian Federation, such as Shevchuk and Bi2, but why should they be afraid if they have support in the Kremlin. Putin's power vertical resembles a Russian field filthy with cow cakes, and no one is going to clean this sheep, and we live in a beautiful place but with a bad smell

    boycott failed

    - and in what it was expressed and in what it failed, the anonymous person did not say.

    Even Lavrov is alone in the photo, not 1 + 12 .... PR was not completed

    One question: of these 13, how many pretended to quietly support the boycott? There is no data anywhere, but it looks like at least 7 more .... And that is why the West claims that the boycott took place.
