More than two years of war in Ukraine

The Ukrainian president, with the support of ten leaders gathered at a peace summit which opened on Saturday in Switzerland, promised to make proposals to Russia once they are validated by the international community .

“When the action plan is on the table, accepted by all and transparent to the people, then it will be communicated to the representatives of Russia, so that we can truly end the war”promised Volodymyr Zelensky, at the opening of this two-day summit with measured ambitions in the absence of Moscow and Beijing.

Kenya, Saudi Arabia and Turkey deplored the fact that Russia, whose summit was denigrated by President Vladimir Putin, has not yet been invited to Switzerland. “This summit could have been more results-oriented if the other party to the conflict, Russia, was present in the room”declared the head of Turkish diplomacy, Hakan Fidan.

But the majority of the approximately 90 countries present reiterated their support for Ukraine and called for a “just peace” based on the United Nations Charter.

And French President Emmanuel Macron called for “expand the circle of countries” around the discussion table.
