G-20 Host India Resists Calling Russia’s War a ‘War’

Updated on

Indian officials hosting the Group of 20 finance chiefs this week are seeking to avoid using the word “war” in any joint statement when referring to Russia’s attack on Ukraine, a person familiar with the matter said.

That would mark a divergence from the consensus reached by leaders in Bali last November. The person said using words like “crisis” will be more acceptable.
