MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. Leaders of the G20 countries could discuss the Ukrainian crisis at the upcoming summit in Australia’s Brisbane, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said on Friday.
“It is not ruled out that the Ukrainian issue may be discussed, as well as other issues, including Islamic State (IS) and Afghanistan,” Ushakov said, adding that there is no formal agenda for the summit and leaders may raise any topics.
Meanwhile, Russian G20 Sherpa Svetlana Lukash said she is not expecting a broad discussion of the Ukrainian crisis during the summit. “These issues are not on the agenda, although they may be discussed.”
The summit of the world’s major economies is scheduled for November 15-16 in Australia’s Brisbane.
Relations between Russia and the West have deteriorated over the Ukrainian crisis, as the US and the EU imposed economic sanctions against Russia, and Moscow responded with a ban on food imports from countries that sanctioned it.
The West accuses Russia of aiding militias in eastern Ukraine, while Moscow has repeatedly denied the claims condemning Kiev’s operation as war against Ukraine’s own people.
