World leaders will face up to Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov after Putin ducked the summit in Bali.

Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky will attend virtually despite his nation not being part of the economic club.

Mr Sunak said ahead of the summit: “Putin’s war has caused devastation around the world — destroying lives and plunging the international economy into turmoil.

“This G20 will not be business as usual.

“We will call out Putin’s regime and lay bare their utter contempt for the kind of cooperation and respect for sovereignty forums like the G20 represent.

Mr Sunak also pledged to work with allies to “make meaningful progress solving the economic challenges we face and making lives better for our people”.

A No10 insider said the PM would not shy away from confronting Russian delegates.

The source said: “The way to alleviate these problems is for Putin to end this war.

“The PM will use the opportunity to ensure the Russian government reckons with the devastation they are causing — to Ukraine, to their country and to the world.”

Yesterday, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said Russia’s withdrawal from the city of Kherson marked “another strategic failure” for Mad Vlad’s army.

Russian forces destroyed critical infrastructure, such as communications networks as well as water, heat and electricity supplies, in Kherson before fleeing, President Zelensky said yesterday.
