Biden: We will respond if Putin uses chemical weapons, Russia should also leave the G20 | Overseas

“It is up to the G20 to decide that. We talked about it today and I said that I think Russia should go. However, other countries disagree, such as Indonesia.” He also argued that Ukraine should be able to attend the G20 meeting. Indonesia, which currently leads the G20, has held a summit for next fall. Russia has been invited and President Vladimir Putin plans to attend the summit.

The G20 is an international forum focused on cooperation and economic stability. Of the twenty members, India and Brazil, for example, may not support a boycott of Russia.

Russia was once part of the G7, then the G8. But the US, Canada, Japan, Germany, France, Italy and Britain banned Moscow eight years ago after annexing Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula.


Biden also made it clear that additional sanctions were coming. The US will, among other things, impose sanctions on more than 400 individuals and institutions, including the Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, and 48 defense companies.

He also confirmed that the US would accept 100,000 refugees from Ukraine. And he also echoed earlier news from NATO that they would set up new units in Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary.

‘Never been so united’

In a press conference, the US president also said that “NATO has never been more united than it is today. “President Putin got the exact opposite of what he expected.”
