"Russian propagandists have taken aim at Zelensky's peace formula, especially on the eve of the World Summit in Switzerland.

Russian resources are currently focused on discrediting Zelensky's peace formula during the World Summit in Switzerland, as the Kremlin sees a real threat from Kyiv forming a geopolitical alliance.

The point is that Ukraine has initiated similar events more than once. Similar events with similar goals and agendas took place in Denmark, Saudi Arabia, and Malta in 2023, and on January 14, 2024, in Davos. But all of this was just preparation for a major summit scheduled to take place in Bürgenstock. Ukraine is actively engaged in diplomatic efforts to unite as many countries as possible around "Zelensky's Formula" and is forming a support team, for which victory in the war and peace would be associated exclusively with the borders of 1991. This condition must become a constant in any international discussion. And this is Kyiv's strategy to pressure Moscow to comply with "Zelensky's Formula," whether on the battlefield or on the geopolitical stage.

This is a long-term process that creates conditions "for" and a coalition "for" Russia's capitulation. A parallel can be drawn with the Potsdam Conference, which was preceded by serious diplomatic work and ended with a well-known historical precedent.

Obviously, under the current regime in the Kremlin, Russia will never voluntarily return Ukrainian territories. But diplomatic efforts to exert international pressure on Russia and to foster an understanding among Ukraine's partners that the end of war and peace cannot happen without Lugansk, Donetsk, Yalta, Melitopol, Mariupol, and all territories within Ukraine's borders - this is the goal of the summit.

Ukraine has managed to gather more than 80 countries around it. The first step has been taken - next, even more very difficult diplomatic work, to which the Russian side, sensing the threat from this process, will try to counter and damage."
