Commentator Oliver Stuenkel, professor of International Relations at FGV, provides an overview of the movements around the G20 in the debut of his painting in Jornal da CBN. One of the topics is the stance of the Brazilian government, which is producing an opinion with legal arguments that allows Vladmir Putin to come to the country. Stuenkel explains that there is a risk that the discussion of Putin’s arrival will contaminate the spirit of cooperation fundamental to the G20. ‘The most likely scenario is that the president of Russia will not come’.

Oliver Stuenkel explains the problem that the International Criminal Court issued, in March last year, an arrest warrant against the President of Russia in the context of the invasion of Ukraine. As a result, Brazil, like 123 other countries, signatories of the Rome statute, is in theory obliged to arrest Putin if he lands on Brazilian soil.

‘Not arresting him would be a violation of the Rome Statute.’

Commentator mentions that the G20, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro in November, is the final point of the Brazilian presidency of the G20. ‘The most important moment of this Brazilian presidency’.
