Indonesia has also invited Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to attend the Bali summit.

This might be awkward. They should invite Trump too, just go for flat-out legendary madness.

Macho man Putin should go surfing at 10 foot Uluwattu.....

Then send Xi out to rescue him...

Alternatively street cart diarrhea....

Great opportunity for knowing exactly where Putin will be on a given day.

I hope there will be peace as soon as possible

dialogue and diplomacy; that’s what we want; the bad and the ugly of the world are not going to magically disappear, so we need to deal with them, like it or not; we only have one planet; can’t run away.

Sounds like trouble.

Give these two their own tables. In another room.

Great opportunity for knowing exactly where Putin will be on a given day.

I think he might send his double xD

Here's the plan - millions of people to flood the Interpol and International Court of Justice websites demanding that these two mass-murderers are taken into custody the minute they land in Bali.

They should not be able to walk the streets, let alone stride the world's stage - Putin is a vicious Dictator who has wilfully sent over 45,000 men to their deaths in an illegal war, plus he runs Russia as a terrorist state, where torture is the norm in the police-stations and prisons.

Xi has overseen the deaths of over 5-million people by releasing his Chinavirus gift to the world, not to mention more than 2.9 Billion people infected, millions of which will have shortened lives through illness. His genocide against the Uighurs and his 11 separate international disputes really place him as World's Enemy No. 1.

Their demise can not come soon enough.

Jokowi has sought to position himself as mediator between the warring countries, and has in recent months travelled to meet both the Ukrainian and Russian presidents to call for an end to the war, and seek ways to ease the global food crisis.

A typical "夜郎自大" person who thinks highly of himself with no knowledge of limitations. Besides, nobody is sure if Putin can stay in the office by November.

-6 ( +2 / -8 )

These 2 should be barred from leaving their own countries. Putin is a war criminal and Xi sponsors Genocide.

that these two mass-murderers are taken into custody the minute they land in Bali.

and when another country demands the same for lets say, the leader of the United States?

would any leader ever attend any world meeting outside their country ever again after that?

and taken into custody by who?

-2 ( +11 / -13 )

Obviously yes, all war criminals. Via the Hague. Americans will have to look that up

4 ( +7 / -3 )

So Ukraine now a G20 member?

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

Bad Bully Panda!

The UN shud send him home.

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

Maybe the Russians can throw in mini-me as a sweetener to get Pooh bear to buy some extra oil....”Ok, we sell at a dollar a barrel above cost but you must also take small man. What you do with him after delivery, is not ...how you say...”important.”

If I were Putie, I’d think twice and then thrice about leaving the country in the middle of a debacle. He might not be invited back home.....

2 ( +6 / -4 )

I would laugh my head off if there were a putsch while poo tin were out of the country, remember the old adage “while the cats away, the mice will play” ! Few if any in the Kremlin bunker love him, just fear him or are making oodles of corrupt money from him.

Joko, another small time politico looking to inflate his importance at others expense.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Wonder if Xi-Den will attend?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Much too dangerous for Zelensky too go. Putin wants him dead bad. Zelensky would have to worry about poisoned food, exploding toilets, anything...

Maybe send a top ranking Ukrainian politician.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Disgusting men. Both should be arrested on arrival

3 ( +7 / -4 )

Be nice if the three were there, but Zelensky may well feel of better use leading his country on to victory against Russia!

3 ( +6 / -3 )

and when another country demands the same for let's say, the leader of the United States?'

Well, last time I looked, I don't think President Biden has committed mass-murder or favours the use of torture, or rules the USA in a totally repressive manner, and nor did his predecessors Trump or Obama.

The International Court of Justice in The Hague, working in conjunction with Interpol, have arrested, tried and imprisoned many evil people from around the world, most recently the Bosnian-Serbs Radovan Karadzic & Ratko Mladic, the Ugandan Dominic Ongwen, and dozens of others, most of whom will not see the light of day again. Their terrible crimes pale into insignificance when compared to those of Putin and Xi - these evil little Dictators are akin to Hitler in their aims, methods, and sheer sadistic cruelty meted out to millions of people.

This is why they should be apprehended at the earliest opportunity, and brought to justice, to answer for their despicable barbaric behaviour. Why should people's lives be destroyed so worthlessly by them ? Just imagine living in either Russia or China right now - you would have no freedom whatsoever, which you currently enjoy today I'm the free democratic countries of our world.

There can scarcely be anyone on this planet who can not wait for the likes of Putin, Xi, and Kim Jong-un to be eliminated, for all the suffering they are causing each and every day throughout the world.

-1 ( +6 / -7 )

Yes putin and xi should be arrested the moment they land in Indonesia.

3 ( +8 / -5 )

There is not a table large enough for Putin.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

If Putin wanted him dead, he'd be dead. Putin doesn't want him dead in case someone much more competent and much less corrupt replaces him. That incompetence is why he won't attend. The imperialist powers probably want him dead.

-4 ( +5 / -9 )

Zelenskiy will not leave his country.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

If Putin wanted him dead, he'd be dead.

Bunk. Utter bunk. Perhaps you missed the missile strikes, the assassination teams, the Chechens that never made it back home?

Putie has tried and failed to kill Zelenski. He may yet succeed, but the premise that benevolent Vlad allows Zelenski to live during a “special military operation” that he is losing is so laughable as to cause one to question the loudly snort.

Better to kick the Russians out of the G20 before the meeting. Put together a Putin 5 summit with Russia, Belarus, North Korea, Iran and Syria.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

A nearby nation needs to host exercises and invite a couple of Ukraine MiG29's to take part in "live fire" drills. If they stray off course when Putin's plane approaches, it might be considered unfortunate by some and fortunate by others. Zelensky should get an armed escort to and from Bali.

Who knows what can happen but Bali is putting itself right in the middle of a storm hosing both sides of a war at the same place and time. Putin is disgusting and as others keep pointing out he is a war criminal and needs to be tried for his crimes and then executed.

You're right. I did miss all that. Government buildings, TV stations, bridges and etc in Kiev haven't been touched. The Russians aren't exactly going by the NATO playbook.

Both Obama and trump have extra judicially executed foreign citizens on foreign soil, many times without that country's consent. Doesn't matter if they're considered terrorists by the Americans or not. Would America tolerate Chinese drones killing American citizens in the us that the Chinese govt has deemed terrorists? I think not.

That last paragraph is me and should not be in quotes. Edit button please

Seems a lot of posters can't grasp that less than half the attendees to this summit have enacted sanctions against Russia, despite the US and EU pressure to do so.

The reason that there is a G20, and was a G8, is because the G7 hasn't had the power to dictate the global economic policies or set the global political agenda for decades, and within the G20, the five nation association commonly referred to as BRICS carries effectively the same weight as the almost dozen nations that are NATO members.

Biden drone struck an innocent Afghan family to death just last year. Some countries would take that to mean he needs to be arrested for terrorism, yes.

or somebody gets the idea to hold a current leader accountable for previous crimes their county is believed by them to have committed.

Do you feel that he should have been instead dedicating his time and energy to love letters with dictators, and trying to figure out ways to overthrow the will of the voters in 2024, overthrowing the government in a coup, if he doesn't like the vote? You know, all the things you support Trump on doing or attempting?

"Xi, Putin to attend G20 summit in Bali in November; Ukraine's Zelenskiy also invited"

They should invite Vitali Klitschko as well...and the winner takes all...

Putin thinks he is tough - he rides horses, handles tigers, has 7th dan in Judo,... - so prove it..

If Donald Trump were president these two leaders would show respect. Right now they are laughing at the ineptitude of Biding His Time Biden!

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

If Donald Trump were president these two leaders would show respect.

Heh, Putin would be happy to have his crony back in the white house.

If Trump was real lucky, Putin would exchange love letters with him.

Saw where an insider of the Russian State Media called Trump "Our Agent Trump".

“I'm very worried for our agent Trump.

https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/03/connections-trump-putin-russia-ties-chart-flynn-page-manafort-sessions-214868/ shows the connections. Michael Flynn, Administration officials, Campaign advisors, , Pail Manafort, Business Ties, Felix Sater, Close Trump family members (kids and son-in-law). Walking like a duck and quaking like a duck. I'm thinking he isn't a wood pecker.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Joko's pipe dream of mediation isn't going to materialize.

I doubt Putin and XI will attend the meeting.

Zelenskyy ...well who knows what he'll do ?

Needs a brazier.
