Vladimir Putin Calls for Sanctions ‘Moratorium’ at G20 Summit For Coronavirus Pandemic

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday called for sanctions relief during the coronavirus pandemic, telling G20 leaders it was a matter “of life and death”.

The leader did not specify which countries should be earmarked for sanctions relief, speaking instead more broadly.

“Ideally we should introduce a… joint moratorium on restrictions on essential goods as well as on financial transactions for their purchase,” Putin said at a virtual meeting of G20 leaders on Thursday.
