The G20 Summit in Brisbane, Australia, comes to a close on Sunday...with world leaders signing a family photo. During two days of meetings, they agreed to boost flagging global growth, tackle climate change and crack down on tax avoidance. But ties between the West and Russia plummeted to a new low over the crisis in eastern Ukraine. U.S. President Barack Obama warned that Russia would remain isolated from the international community if it continued to back separatist rebels in Ukraine. (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA SAYING: "You don't invade other countries or finance proxies and support them in ways that break up a country that has mechanisms for democratic elections." Russian President Vladimir Putin left the summit earlier than planned, but not before saying a solution to the Ukraine crisis was possible. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) RUSSIAN PRESIDENT, VLADIMIR PUTIN, SAYING: "Today the situation, in my view, has good chances for resolution, no matter how strange it may sound." Putin has denied Moscow's involvement in the conflict, which has killed more than 4,000 people so far. Several Western nations have warned Russia that more sanctions may lay ahead over Moscow's actions in Ukraine.
