The First Peace Summit on Ukraine is scheduled for June 15-16. Kyiv has already planned discussions on several topics outlined by the peace formula.

It's worth noting that the main subject of discussion at the first and subsequent peace summits will be the peace formula proposed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The peace formula reflects a scenario for ending the war with Russia, based on the United Nations (UN) Charter and international law. It consists of 10 points:

• Radiological and nuclear security.

• Food security.

• Energy security.

• Release of all prisoners and deportees (including kidnapped children).

• Compliance with the UN Charter and restoration of territorial integrity and the world order.

• Withdrawal of Russian troops and cessation of hostilities.

• Restoration of justice.

• Resistance to ecocide.

• Prevention of escalation.

• Confirmation of the end of the war.

Meetings regarding the peace formula have already taken place at the level of advisors to the heads of states, totaling five in all. Now, Ukraine wants to hold a summit at the leaders' level to document the achieved results.

Recently, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky mentioned in his evening address that the first peace summit will focus on three questions:

1. Energy and nuclear security.

2. Freedom of navigation.

3. Prisoner exchange.

Specifically, they want to divide the last question into two sub-questions: exchanging all prisoners and returning Ukrainian children deported to Russia.

If there are no disagreements among the participating leaders, it is expected that responsible states will be designated for each issue.
