Russia tried to prevent the peace summit in Switzerland because it wanted Ukraine to surrender. But this will never happen, states UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

According to the British prime minister, Russia wanted to disrupt the peace summit because it feels threatened by the discussion of the principles of international law.

"We should ask: why does Russia feel so threatened by a summit that discusses the fundamental principles of territorial integrity, food and nuclear security?" Sunak emphasized.

In addition, the British prime minister recalled how shortly before the peace summit, Russia's representative to the UN said that the only topic of international meetings on Ukraine should be "the unconditional surrender of the Kyiv regime."

"Well, this will never happen. Because aggression cannot and should not prevail," Sunak responded to the Russian representative's words.

Peace Summit in Switzerland

Today, June 15, the inaugural peace summit organized by Ukraine with the help of the President of Switzerland has begun in Switzerland. The summit will discuss three elements of the peace formula developed by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

These are humanitarian, food, and nuclear security. In addition, according to the Swiss president, the summit will discuss how to engage Russia in the search for a just peace in Ukraine.

At the same time, Zelenskyy, speaking at the first plenary session, described what results he expects from the first peace summit.
