G20 summit: Putin leaves before final communique
Russian President Vladimir Putin has left the G20 summit in Australia before it officially ends.
He faced fierce criticism from Western leaders on Saturday over the Ukraine conflict but described the summit as constructive and useful.
World leaders are focusing on economic growth on the second and final day of the summit in Brisbane.
They have agreed a plan to grow their economies by 2% more than expected by 2018.
Putin said he was leaving before the release of the official communique on Sunday because of the long flight to Russia and he wanted to get some sleep.
The Russian president said: "Some of our views do not coincide, but the discussions were complete, constructive and very helpful".
US President Barack Obama is due to meet European leaders to discuss a co-ordinated response to what they see as Russia's destabilisation of Ukraine.
On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron all sharply criticised Putin.
The Kremlin denies that it has sent military forces or heavy weapons to pro-Russia rebels in eastern Ukraine.
The US and the European Union have put in place a series of sanctions against Russia since its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in March.
In a television interview on Saturday, Putin called for an end to sanctions, saying they harmed the world economy as well as Russia.
