Putin Will Address Biden’s April 22 Climate Summit Live

April 20 , 2021 (EIRNS)—A Kremlin press service statement reported today that President Vladimir Putin will participate in the April 22-23 virtual summit on climate change, and that in his remarks “Putin will outline Russia’s approaches in the context of establishing a broad international cooperation geared to reverse negative impacts of the global climate change.” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov further said, “It will be a live address.” There is no word yet on whether Chinese President Xi Jinping will also participate in Biden’s climate bash; he did deliver the keynote address to the opening ceremony of the annual conference of the Boao Forum for Asia, covered in this issue.

The day before the climate summit begins, on April 21, President Putin will deliver his annual Message to the Federal Assembly, Russia’s bicameral legislature, which Federation Council Speaker Sen. Valentina Matviyenko characterized as “a message for a new era” in the midst of “the difficult environment that the world is facing.” RT reported that Putin “is preparing to present his vision of the future in a dramatic speech.”
