"Indonesia would be very happy [to organize the meeting]. And we have done it previously. For example, during the conflict in Cambodia, Indonesia has hosted Jakarta informal meetings for the Vietnam and Cambodia leaders who were at time in dispute. They started up with some cocktails. And the things did develop. We do not promise that this will immediately resolve something, but simply talking to one other could help the progress of discussions," the ambassador said when asked whether it would be possible to organize a meeting.
The ambassador added that the invitation to attend the summit had been extended to Putin, but the decision on whether to come in person remains with Moscow.
"President of Indonesia [Joko Widodo] has come here personally to invite Russia to participate in the summit. Russia as a member of G20 is equally important to any other member state. Moreover, Indonesia does not have a right to disinvite – we only have a prerogative right to invite additional participants as the host country," the ambassador said.
"As a result of the missile attack, unfortunately, we have casualties and deaths. At the moment, there are ten people wounded and two dead, this is preliminary data, the final results will be summarized later, rescue services are now working at the site," Eliseev told journalists.
The official added that "the nature of the wounds shows that HIMARS cluster munitions, filled with shrapnel elements for a greater striking effect, have been used."
"I am sure that the Kiev regime knew that the crossing was used exclusively by civilians... Minors were wounded, and journalists are among the victims," Eliseev said.
He added that the wounded were taken to the regional hospital and would further be taken to Crimea for treatment if necessary.
"The Kiev regime fired 12 HIMARS missiles, 11 missiles were shot down by air defense systems, one fell in the area of the Antonovsky bridge. Information on casualties and destruction is being specified," the spokesman of the emergency services told reporters.
US House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has pledged that if the Republicans become a majority in the lower chamber of Congress in the midterm elections, Ukraine will not get a "blank check" for assistance given the looming recession in the United States
In response to McCarthy's warning, a bipartisan group of lawmakers is working to pass the $50 billion aid package, most likely as part of an omnibus spending bill, before a new Congress takes office in January.
"I can tell you that the Defense Department is working hard right now on looking at air defense capabilities that we can provide Ukraine going forward," Kirby told CNN.
"Spain, Germany just agreed to send medium range air defense systems to Ukraine," Kirby said, noting that the US is going to "keep working with them."
"This step is on a par with the supply of lethal weapons to the Kiev regime, and qualitatively increases the involvement of the EU, making it, of course, a party to the conflict," Zakharova said at a briefing.
"I am back to Ukraine after my last visit a year ago. My purpose is to get an overview of the military and humanitarian situation, as well as of the preparatory works for rebuilding of the country," Cassis tweeted.
