Ukrainian President Zelensky's eagerness to partake in the gathering of the world's top economies is informed by a profound understanding of the strategic significance.

Participation presents an invaluable opportunity to articulate Ukraine's perspective, rally support, and underline the urgency of a united response against aggression.

Insiders from the Kremlin have revealed that Putin is contemplating a physical presence at the G20 summit, which could be seen as an attempt to charm those member countries not aligned with the Western bloc, a bloc that supports Ukraine against Russia.

As the countdown to the G20 summit continues, the anticipation heightens. The decision on whether to extend an invitation to Ukraine carries immense weight, signaling broader diplomatic implications in the ongoing struggle for sovereignty.
