The attack coincides with the intervention of the Ukrainian president, Volodímir Zelenski, at the G-20 summit that is being held in Bali, Indonesia. In his telematic speech, the president declared that he is “convinced” that “Russia’s destructive war must and can be stopped”.
“We will not allow Russia to take a breather, rebuild its forces and then start a new episode of terror and destabilization,” Zelensky told the assembled leaders, according to a transcript of his closed-door speech.
Zelensky “does not want peace”
According to the Kremlin, the Ukrainian president’s speech at the G20 summit confirms that kyiv does not want to negotiate peace with Moscow. “It absolutely confirms it,” said the spokesman for the Russian Presidency, Dmitry Peskov.
Peskov thus commented on Zelensky’s words about the inability to sign ‘Minsk 3’, a ceasefire agreement similar to ‘Minsk 1’ and ‘Minsk 2’, reached between Moscow and kyiv in 2014 and 2015, respectively , to end the fighting in eastern Ukraine.
