Ukraine's parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, has adopted a resolution calling on partners to exclude Russia from the G20 group of nations

Ukrainian lawmakers Oleksii Honcharenko and Yaroslav Zhelezniak wrote about this on Telegram.

On November 16, the Verkhovna Rada called for the exclusion of Russia from the G20 and adopted the relevant resolution №8203.

“Parliament appealed to the countries of the Group of Twenty (G20) to deprive the Russian Federation of the membership in this Group...That is, to make it G19,” Zhelezniak wrote. 

310 lawmakers supported this decision. Among those present, 35 did not make their choice.

“The targeted destruction of the population of Ukraine by the Russian Federation, which has all the signs of genocide, as well as the indiscriminate missile attacks and artillery shelling of the energy infrastructure of Ukraine by the occupying Russian forces do not pursue any military goals and have exclusively terrorist goals,” Zhelezniak emphasized.

It is reported that after the annexation of Crimea and the beginning of the war in Donbas, Russia was excluded from the G8.

“It's high time to kick them out of the G20," Honcharenko added.

  • On November 15, the summit of G20 countries started in Indonesia.

  • The US expects the G20 group to condemn Russia's war against Ukraine and its damaging impact on the world economy after its meeting in Indonesia.

  • Yesterday, on November 15, the President of Ukraine called on the G20 to stop the destructive war of the Russian Federation and named the conditions for its termination.

  • On November 15, the Russian Federation launched a massive missile attack on a number of regions.  Explosions were heard in Kyiv, Lviv, Rivne, Kharkiv, Zhytomyr, and other cities. Air defense was operating in many regions, in particular, a missile was shot down over the Sumy region.

  • Ukrainian air defense shot down 73 missiles out of more than 90 launched, as well as all 10 ‘kamikaze’ drones.

  • In the evening of November 15, the spokesman of the Polish government, Piotr Müller, announced the convening of the Committee of the Council of Ministers on National Security and Defense. At the same time, reports appeared in the Polish media about explosions near the border with Ukraine and the death of two people, presumably due to the fall of Russian missiles.

  • Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in a video message to the G20 participants, said that after a preliminary discussion on how to end the war, the Russian Federation launched almost a hundred missiles. He also called for Russia to be excluded from the G20.
