German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that the “astonishingly clear words” the Group of 20 leaders agreed on in their joint statement Wednesday shows that Vladimir Putin is increasingly isolated over the war.
“The Russian president is almost alone in the world with his policy and has no strong alliance partner,” Scholz told reporters on the sidelines of the meeting in Bali, Indonesia.
President Joe Biden earlier pledged “full US support” for a Polish investigation after a rocket struck a village just over the border from Ukraine and killed two people. He said, “preliminary information” suggested the projectile was not fired from Russia, which denied its forces had aimed missiles at targets along the Polish frontier. China urged restraint.
