10 September 2023

Ukraine continues to unite the world around the peace formula of President Volodymyr Zelensky, noted the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Andriy Yermak, at the annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES) The Future is Being Decided In Ukraine, organized by YES in partnership with the Viktor Pinchuk Foundation.

«The countries have to respect international law, the Charter of the United Nations, the independence of Ukraine, our territorial integrity, internationally recognized borders, and sovereignty. Respect should be the unifying principle for all participating countries of the peace formula summit. Then we are ready to listen and speak», — said the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine.

He emphasized that President Zelensky’s peace formula can become the basis for a new global security architecture. This formula fully complies with the norms of international law, added the head of the Presidential Office of Ukraine.

«The peace formula is constructed in such a way that the last, tenth point, is a legal confirmation of the end of the war. But until that happens, all that hard work must be done in the rest of the previous 9 points of the peace formula. It is their consistent implementation that enables the creation of a new system that will guarantee real security for Ukraine», summarised Andriy Yermak.
