India, which holds the rotating chair for the G20, does not plan to invite Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to the annual summit, slated to be held in New Delhi on September 9-10. The host country’s external affairs minister, Dr. Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, clarified New Delhi’s position during a press conference on Thursday.

The unequivocal announcement puts to rest speculations about Zelensky possibly sharing the international stage with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Such a possibility had gained momentum during the four-day visit of Emine Dzhaparova, Ukraine’s first deputy foreign minister, to New Delhi in April. She was the first top-ranking official from Ukraine to visit India since Russia launched its military operation against Kiev in February 2022. Speculation about Ukraine piling pressure on India and seeking New Delhi’s endorsement ahead of the September summit were reinforced by Zelensky’s attendance at last year’s G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia, and more recently at last month’s G7 gathering in Hiroshima, Japan.

However, a Bali or Hiroshima redux was clearly taken off the table by Dr. Jaishankar’s emphatic statement. His address coincided with the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi presenting a report card on its nine years in office, while Dr. Jaishankar himself weighed in on India’s foreign policy outreach as New Delhi seeks to chart out an independent outlook.

The Russian Defense Ministry blames Ukraine for the sabotage of the Tolyatti-Odesa ammonia pipeline in the northeastern Kharkiv region of Ukraine.
