Kyiv’s peace plan, expected to be unveiled in full in February 2023, is rooted in the norms of international law and the UN Charter, and contains everything needed to resolve the Russia-Ukraine conflict for good, head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Andrii Yermak, told Ukrainian TV broadcasters on Dec. 23.

He reiterated that any country can make a valuable contribution to implementing the peace formula, outlined by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy back in November.

“Today, we have received confirmation of interest, and support from many of our strategic partners,” said Yermak.

“All of them have not just said yes, but also declared the desire to champion one of the points (of the formula).”

According to him, the Netherlands has already announced its readiness to take the lead in organizing and holding an international tribunal and creating a compensation mechanism for Ukraine.

“We want the list of countries that would take part in the summit and in the UN General Assembly meeting to support our plan – to be even larger than the record number of countries that supported the resolution against the annexation of our territories,” Yermak added.

On Oct. 12, UN General Assembly condemned Russia’s attempted illegal annexation of four Ukrainian regions, with 143 votes against five.

On Dec. 12, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Ukraine plans to initiate a summit to implement the Ukrainian peace formula in 2023.

At the G20 Bali summit in November, Zelenskyy presented a ten-point peace formula that includes the restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity, the withdrawal of Russian troops, the release of all prisoners, a tribunal for those responsible for the aggression, and security guarantees for Ukraine.
