The G20 risks failure by the tension with Russia and the commercial war: https://goo.gl/AiNyC5

Vladimir Putin He has been in power for 18 years. No other G20 leader can be compared in seniority. Neither in cynicism, nor in ability to provoke and handle conflicts, nor in cruelty when it comes to exterminating adversaries, nor in military brutality. At his side, the Saudi Prince Mohamed Bin Salmán He is an apprentice. Putin, who seems to have started a new phase in his strategy of devouring Ukraine, is now deploying his talents at the Buenos Aires summit: he links sanctions against his regime with protectionism, celebrates with Bin Salmán (his enemy in Syria) and shrinks shoulders when talking about the new crisis between Moscow and Kiev. The G20 summit that began this Friday, marked by the trade war between the United States and China and the divergences over climate change, runs a serious risk of failure. It is the atmosphere of tension in which Putin feels comfortable.
