Saudi Arabia Summit: A new peace endeavor

The Wall Street Journal, citing diplomats, has reported the organization of a meeting focused on peace in Ukraine, notably excluding the Russian Federation from the guest list. This information was later corroborated by the Head of the Presidential Office, Andriy Yermak. According to Yermak, Saudi Arabia has indeed agreed to host a meeting regarding the peace formula proposed by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The Peace Formula for Ukraine

The peace formula was first introduced by the President during his address at the G20 summit. It encompasses the following key points:

  • Radiological and nuclear security (Russia's withdrawal from the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone, abandonment of nuclear threats).
  • Food security (expansion of grain initiative).
  • Energy security.
  • Liberation of all captives and deportees (release based on the "all for all" principle).
  • Adherence to the UN Charter, restoration of territorial integrity and global order.
  • Withdrawal of Russian troops and cessation of hostilities.
  • Justice.
  • Ecocide awareness, urgent need for environmental protection.
  • Prevention of escalation.
  • Documentation of the war's conclusion.
