Russian President Vladimir Putin, after missing the last two G20 summits in Indonesia and India, is set to participate in virtual summit with fellow G20 world leaders this Wednesday, as reported by state-run TV.
"Vladimir Putin will engage in the upcoming virtual G20 summit," announced Russia's Vesti TV show in a social media update on Sunday.
Scheduled by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the talks aim to build upon significant outcomes and action points from the prior New Delhi summit, as detailed in a statement from Modi's office.
Putin's international travels have been limited since an arrest warrant was issued against him by the International Criminal Court (ICC) regarding the unlawful deportation of Ukrainian children.
The G20 includes 19 of the world's major economies alongside the European Union and the African Union.
