G20 Members Divided Over Ukraine Conflict

A U.S.-supported declaration condemns the war for causing human suffering and harming the global economy.

The United States and others at the G20 have submitted a draft resolution condemning the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. The resolution is being discussed by the leaders attending the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia. 

The draft declaration stated, “Most members strongly condemned the war in Ukraine and stressed it is causing immense human suffering and exacerbating existing fragilities in the global economy.”

Some nations oppose the resolution, including Russia, China, and India. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the declaration is politicized and that the G20 needs to “make it clear that, on this topic, we have differences.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For President Biden to seek God’s guidance as he interacts with G20 members.
  • That the leaders at the G20 Summit would be discerning in their approach to the conflict in Ukraine.
  • For the purposes of the Lord to be accomplished in the outcomes of the summit.
