The West is taking Zelensky to the G20 summit in opposition to Putin


The White House National Security Council believes that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky should definitely take part in the GXNUMX summit in Bali this November if Russian President Vladimir Putin is there. In this case, Zelensky’s stay does not make much sense, except as a counterweight to Putin, out of principle.


According to Bloomberg, the position of the White House is actually simpler - the administration of President Joe Biden is against the participation of the leader of the Russians in the forum in Bali, but if Putin nevertheless arrives there (as India, China and the host country Indonesia insist on), then there should be Zelensky.

The American side wants to make a show out of the event, while Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping are preparing behind the scenes, which will be their first personal meeting since the election of the first President of the United States.

However, so far none of the leaders of Russia, the United States or China has finally confirmed their participation in the summit, so far the ground for serious negotiations is being prepared by aides. Therefore, the visit of Zelensky as a specially invited guest is also postponed. If there are no main participants of the summit, then the visit of the actor becomes meaningless.

Even before the start of the summit, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is going to get ahead of Washington on the issue of organizing a meeting between the heads of Russia and Ukraine. If his efforts succeed in pushing through the continuation of the Istanbul talks, only at a higher level of heads of state, then the West's plan for high-profile meetings on the sidelines of the summit will fail. In this case, the role of the peacekeeper will go to Ankara, and not to Washington, which is currently engaged in dragging out time in the conflict in Ukraine.

    The American side wants to make a show out of the event

    So what, and in this the American "friends" are in front of the whole planet.

    In this case, the role of peacemaker will go to Ankara, not Washington

    Why is Ankara better than Washington?
    Ankara supplies Bayraktars, armored cars, but they don’t advertise much about every little thing. Washington supplies MLRS, howitzers, ammunition, etc. etc.

    If these pundos are being imposed on Zelu, we should also invite the Papuans, Berbers, Pygmies and Dalmatians to the G20 (I have great respect for the representatives of our planet mentioned after the G20.

    meeting of the heads of Russia and Ukraine is going to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

    So that's why the Kremlin still does not recognize Ze as the leader of the terrorists! Haven't spoken yet!!

    Practice shows that holding G-summits of various formats does not improve international relations.
    If both Vladimirs arrive in Bali for the G-20 summit, then this does not mean that they will meet there for personal negotiations.
    In this sense, R. Erdogan's efforts are more realistic.
    But what is the point for V. Putin to negotiate with V. Zelensky if he is not an independent political figure?
    Perhaps the Americans will be able to hurt V. Putin's pride by the presence of their vassal V. Zelensky in Bali.
    But it's too small!

    If Zelensky is there, then Putin has nothing to do there because it will not be the GXNUMX, but a parody .... Since Ukraine is not even included in the Thirty ....

    It will be interesting to watch the 20th, where there will be no Russia with China, but there will be a "95th quarter" ..
