The Ukrainian parliament has passed the resolution on the appeal to the G20 to exclude Russia from the Group.

The resolution was supported by 310 MPs, Voice faction member Yaroslav Zheleznyak said.

"Recently, the Russian Federation has started a new stage of its shameful existence and resorted to nuclear blackmail for the sake of terror and keeping in fear not only the European continent, but the whole world. Against the backdrop of its numerous military defeats in Ukraine, the Russian leadership deliberately chose the tactics of terrorist mass attacks on critical civilian infrastructure of Ukraine with the undisguised goal of inflicting maximum damage to the civilian population during the heating season and creating a real humanitarian catastrophe with the hope that it will undermine the will of the Ukrainian people to resist the Russian invasion," the explanatory note reads.

The destruction of the population of Ukraine by the occupiers has all the signs of genocide. Missile attacks and artillery shelling of the energy infrastructure of Ukraine by the Russian occupying troops do not pursue any military goals and have an exclusively terrorist purpose.

"Therefore, given the prominent role of the G20 in maintaining sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth and development of the world economy for the benefit of all peoples, and given that the welfare of the world's states directly depends on their ability to maintain peace and security and to interact with each other in this area on the basis of international law, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine appeals to the G20 states to exclude the Russian Federation from the Group as such that does not fall under any of these criteria," the MPs stressed.

The relevant bill was registered in parliament on 14 November.

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov yesterday left the Indonesian island of Bali, where the G20 summit is taking place, after dinner with the heads of delegations of other countries.
