    HAMBURG (Sputnik) Russia opposes illegitimate trade and financial restrictions and intends to focus the attention of the G20 on issues of ensuring positive dynamics in global trade, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday.

    "During the discussion of the situation in the world economy by the G20, the Russian side intends to focus attention on issues of ensuring positive dynamics of global trade. We oppose the growing protectionism in the world," Putin said at a meeting of BRICS leaders on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg.

    The Russian leader also raised the issue of the fight against terrorism.

    "This time we will also call on the G20 partners to unite in countering terrorism, to jointly promote the centralization of those political, social, economic and ideological prerequisites that contribute to the emergence of terrorism and its expansion," Putin said.
