The US is expected to press the case at a G-20 meeting in Bali that Russia’s military actions set a dangerous precedent as it works with its partners to prevent the attendance of the top Kremlin’s diplomat from subverting the gathering’s agenda.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on the sidelines of the Group of 20 ministerial meeting, where they spoke about the solidarity of the long-time partners. A Biden administration official earlier this week urged Beijing to stop spreading Russian “lies” about the Kremlin’s invasion of its neighbor.
