The format of President Vladimir Putin's participation in the G20 summit in Indonesia will be determined closer to November, but Russian representatives have already looked at hotels there and made reservations. This was announced at a briefing by aide to the President of Russia Yuri Ushakov, RBC correspondent reports.
«We also had viewing teams there, we looked at hotels there, booked places, depending on the general situation, a decision will be made on participation directly president or it will be in video format, & mdash; Ushakov said. According to him, the participation of the Russian president will largely depend on the participation of other leaders.
“It will be more clear. First of all, in what format other leaders will take part, we have not even received confirmation on the account of the Chinese representative yet. In the sum of many factors, a decision on personal participation will be made, — added by Ushakov.
The G20 summit will be held in Bali on November 15-16. Indonesia extended an invitation to G20 leaders in April. At the end of June, Ushakov said that the Russian side had confirmed to Indonesia that its participation was envisaged. In September, the Kremlin clarified that the format of Russia's participation in the G20 summit all factors will be taken into account, including the security factor.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky also received an invitation to the summit, although his country is not a member of the G20. Bloomberg wrote that such a proposal was made by some member states, including the United States, after it became known that Putin had been invited to the meeting.

According to the agency, Jakarta was required to “at least condemn” Russia's actions in Ukraine. U.S. officials have also debated whether President Joe Biden should skip the summit if Putin visits, but sources say Biden is likely to attend.
