Zelenskyy Called On EU Summit in Prague to Implement His "Peace Formula"

Thursday, 6 October 2022

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in his video address to the summit of the European Political Community in Prague, called for the implementation of his "peace formula" for Ukraine.

Zelenskyy noted that he had presented his "peace formula" in an address to the UN General Assembly and cited them in a speech to European leaders.

"The first is to punish the aggressor. Increase sanctions against Russia. Stop any cooperation with Russia and its companies. Exclude it from all international organizations or at least suspend its membership, its ability to distort the activities of international institutions - first of all, the UN," Zelenskyy stated.

According to him, in order to punish the aggressor, "we need a Special Tribunal for the crime of aggression by Russia against Ukraine and an international compensation mechanism that will force Russia to compensate for the damages they caused."

The second is aid to Ukraine. "By helping us, each of your states is helping itself," Zelenskyy said.

The third point is the restoration of security and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

"The fourth point is security guarantees. We need security guarantees before we join NATO. And on this path. And we will do it. We will also do it together with you. Our proposals for security guarantees are presented to partners.

The fifth is determination. In 225 days of full-scale war, we have all already shown that Europe can influence the issues of war and peace. But now - all together - we must ensure that the formula for war is completely blocked and the formula for peace is fully implemented," the president said.

He added that "the day will come when Russian evil will lose. This will be the very day when our peace formula will prevail."
