NEW DELHI – The recent face-to-face meeting between US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in New Delhi – the first such high-level interaction since the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine – suggests that diplomacy may be dead be a swear word.
The 10-minute meeting on the sidelines of the G20 gathering came after US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan reportedly urged Ukraine to show Russia it is ready to negotiate an end to the war. Together, these recent developments offer a glimmer of hope that a ceasefire is a possibility.
The war in Ukraine, which has shaken the foundations of the international order, is in many ways a proxy war between the world’s two great powers, with Russia backed by China and Ukraine backed by the United States. Over the past year, war has unleashed global energy and food crises, spurred higher inflation amid slowing global growth, and heightened risks of a direct Russia-NATO conflict – underscored by Russia’s recent downing of a US drone over the Black Sea .
