PM attacks Putin’s failure to attend G20 summit
Rishi Sunak is heading to a G20 meeting in Bali during which Vladimir Putin’s seat will “remain vacant”. The Prime Minister today labels Russia a “rogue state”, as he attacks the president for failing to defend his actions in Ukraine at the summit in person. Mr Sunak says that Putin’s no-show means he is not even trying to explain his actions despite being “responsible for so much bloodshed in Ukraine”. Writing for The Telegraph for the first time since entering No 10, Mr Sunak outlines his tough stance on the Kremlin that will be in the spotlight at the summit in Bali from tomorrow. It will be the first time a UK prime minister has met Russian officials since the invasion in February, with Sergei Lavrov, the Kremlin’s foreign minister, attending in Putin’s place. Political editor Ben Riley-Smith explains how Mr Sunak will use the summit’s first plenary session to confront Mr Lavrov about Russia’s “illegal” invasion.

The stealth raid means hundreds of thousands will pay tax for the first time or will be dragged into higher rates. At Thursday’s announcement, a range of other thresholds are also expected to be frozen. Tim Wallace explains how Britain could be consigned to higher tax for a generation and Daniel Martin reports energy handouts are set to be targeted at pensioners and those on benefits after April.
