Putin’s peace terms criticized at Ukraine summit

Putin’s peace terms criticized at Ukraine summit

At the Ukraine peace summit in Switzerland, Vladimir Putin’s proposed peace terms were met with criticism and skepticism from world leaders. The Russian president stated that he would agree to a ceasefire if Ukraine withdrew troops from four regions that Russia partially occupies and claims to have annexed.

However, Italy’s Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni dismissed Putin’s plan as mere propaganda, suggesting that it effectively required Ukraine to withdraw from its own territory. This stance has sparked concern among attendees at the summit, which includes representatives from over 90 countries and international organisations.

One notable absence at the summit is Russia, as they were not invited to participate. Additionally, China, Russia’s biggest backer, is also not present, prompting doubts about the effectiveness of the summit in achieving peace in Ukraine.

The situation remains tense as world leaders navigate the delicate negotiations, with the hope of finding a resolution to end the war in Ukraine. Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
