Kremlin: Putin will not attend COP26

Russian President Vladimir Putin will not attend the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov confirmed on Wednesday.

Peskov added Russia will have its representatives at the conference. "We are in contact with the organizers, so we will tell you how it will be later," he said.

Putin previously suggested he might not attend the encounter in person over concerns about the growing number of infections from COVID-19 around the world. Earlier, Chinese President Xi Jinping confirmed he will not be flying to the conference.
