President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, in a video speech shown on Wednesday at the session of the UN General Assembly, presented the “peace formula”, which consists of five points – punishment, protection of life, restoration and security guarantees, as well as determination.
I will present a formula that can work not only for us, but for everyone who may find themselves in a similar situation <...>. It is a formula that presupposes the punishment of a crime, presupposes the protection of life, the restoration of security and territorial integrity, guarantees security and presupposes determination,”
According to him, the first point of the “peace formula” – punishment – provides for the imposition of sanctions, the blocking of trade and relations, as well as the creation of a special tribunal.
At the same time, Zelensky said that Kyiv had prepared “concrete steps to create such a tribunal, and these steps will be presented to all states.”
Ukraine will call on the UN General Assembly to support the international compensation mechanism. We are counting on your support.”
The Ukrainian president called the second point “protection of life”, meaning by this the provision of military and financial assistance.
If a [государству] assistance with weapons and ammunition is required, such assistance must be provided, if financial assistance is required, then it must also be provided, if it is necessary to help with intelligence data, this must be done, “-
At the same time, Zelensky recalled that Kyiv needs financial support to ensure internal stability and fulfill social obligations.
The third point of the head of the Ukrainian state called the restoration of territorial integrity and security, including maritime, food and radiation.
Under the pretext of restoring energy security, Zelensky proposed imposing price caps on Russian energy resources.
The fourth point of the “peace formula”, according to the president, is security guarantees.
We have proposals to improve the security architecture for Ukraine, for Europe, for the whole world <...>, we are already presenting our initiatives to partners. Everyone who receives the text on the “peace formula” “will be convinced that these details are very important for security guarantees,” –
And the fifth point is determination. Without this, all items will not work.
emphasized the Ukrainian leader.
What is not in our formula [мира] – neutrality. Those who talk about neutrality, when our values and the world itself is threatened, they mean something else, they talk about indifference: “Every man for himself.” Here’s what they say. <...> They express sympathy only for the record, and therefore they only pretend to protect someone, but in fact they protect only their own selfish interests, “-
summed up Zelensky.
The Russian authorities have repeatedly stated that Moscow does not refuse negotiations with Kyiv. However, as Russian President Vladimir Putin noted, a peaceful solution to the conflict in Ukraine does not suit the countries of the West, so Kyiv was ordered to disrupt the negotiations.
Prior to this, the Ukrainian side for many years artificially dragged out the negotiations of the Contact Group to resolve the situation in Donbass.
