Ukraine criticizes Delhi G20 declaration, highlighting differences from Bali.

The foreign ministry of Ukraine has voiced its dissatisfaction with the joint declaration of the G20, describing it as “unimpressive.” This disappointment is rooted in the fact that the declaration lacks any reference to Russia’s involvement. Oleg Nikolenko, the spokesperson for Ukraine’s foreign ministry, used social media to highlight the deficiencies in the document. He posted a screenshot of the relevant section of the joint declaration, wherein he had marked out various portions of the text in red and substituted them with language that represents Ukraine’s viewpoint. This emphasized Ukraine’s status as a victim of Russia’s unprovoked aggression.

Interestingly, this year’s G20 summit in New Delhi has diverged from the previous one in Bali, where, over eight months into the Ukrainian conflict, the G20 issued a statement that condemned Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. However, the New Delhi declaration takes a different approach. It does not explicitly mention Russia in the context of the ongoing Ukrainian conflict. Instead, it underscores the significance of all nations respecting the territorial integrity of others.

Additionally, despite Western pressures, the Modi government has chosen not to include the President of Ukraine in the list of “special invitees” for the summit. This year, India has extended invitations to the leaders of state or government from nine other countries in addition to the 19 G20 nations and the European Union.
