Russian President Vladimir Putin will not speak at the climate summit in the Scottish city of Glasgow, since the format of the event does not provide for the possibility of participation via videoconference. This was stated by the press secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov.
According to a Kremlin spokesman, Putin recorded a video message to the participants of the conference on forestry and land use, which will be held as part of the summit, reports TASS.
The Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change opened on 31 October. The main work of the conference will begin on November 1 with the summit of world leaders, which will last for two days.
On the eve of the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that if the conference in Glasgow ends in failure, then all the achievements of world coordination in this matter will be nullified.
