"Minsk as big as the whole world": Zelensky explains why Russia seeks to attend the Peace Summit, although it publicly denies it

Zelensky explained why Russians would like to attend the Peace Summit

The aggressor state of Russia publicly states that it does not recognize the Peace Summit in Switzerland, but in fact, the Russians would like to attend it very much. Participation in the event would give them the opportunity to promote the new Minsk Agreements to freeze the war in Ukraine, but not in the quadripartite Normandy format, but on a global scale.

This was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in a documentary about the war in Ukraine and the creation of the Peace Formula. According to the head of state, Russians are trying to do everything possible to diminish the legitimacy of the Peace Summit because they were not invited.

"They are now working on the fact that there are leaders, and there are many of them, who are asking questions: "So will the Russians be there or not?". And the Russians need them to be there. They say they do not recognize this summit, but they need them to be there. In order to block it. To make Minsk as big as the whole world," Zelensky said.

The head of the President's Office, Andriy Yermak, noted that the leaders of many countries are asking why Russians were not invited to the Peace Summit, as it is allegedly impossible to talk about peace without Russia. However, he emphasized that Ukraine and Russia should not be equated, as Russia is the aggressor.

"To understand this, we need to move on to a rough but obvious example. It is as if today you were establishing responsibility for a crime by putting both the criminal and his victim at the same table. You cannot put equality between us," he said.

It should be noted that the Peace Summit will be held on June 15-16 in the Swiss city of Burgenstock. The day before, the media reported that the exact number of countries and organizations participating in the event has not yet been determined. European diplomats told reporters that 93 representatives were going to attend the Summit, but as of June 11, this figure dropped to 78.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, top EU diplomat Josep Borrell said that the Peace Summit in Switzerland is not a platform for direct negotiations between Ukraine and Russia. Its goal is to develop common parameters for peace based on international law and the UN Charter.
