UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak plans to call for the Group of 20 summit to help end the war in Ukraine by closing loopholes exploited by Russian President Vladimir Putin for years.

In his second major international gathering since taking over as prime minister, Sunak will push for global action to bring down the cost of living, boost global trade, prevent starvation and end the war.
