The peace summit to be hosted by Ukraine and Switzerland in June could be a big step toward peace, states German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

“Even if the main issue of peace (between Ukraine and Russia - ed.) is not discussed there now, but issues that are also part of it, it would be a big step,” Scholz emphasized.

According to him, such an event would allow for “further steps” to be taken.
