President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy does not leave things to chance and has firmly decided to find a formula for peace in Ukraine. The ultimatums and conditions set by Vladimir Putin do not suit a leader like Zelenskyy, who is frustrated by the actions of the Russian president. The Ukrainian leader wants to achieve peace in his country but is aware that it will be a difficult task. In his video address, Zelenskyy referred to the peace summit in Switzerland and stated that he had met with world experts who could be engaged to establish peace in different regions. During the summit, it was clear that all countries are open to peace, as the war in Ukraine benefits no one.

“Today, we also continued to prepare our next external steps, in particular, the activities between the First and Second Peace Summits. I held a meeting with international experts to appoint those responsible for regions and parts of the world in order to involve even more participants in joint work on the points of the Peace Formula,” Zelenskyy said in a video address, as quoted by interfax.

The President of Ukraine wants all countries to be involved and to guarantee peace in Ukraine. His intentions are to gradually form groups that would work step by step towards achieving lasting peace and security. Volodymyr Zelenskyy has no intention of witnessing the same scenarios week after week and leading this war in the long term. He wants all countries of the world to understand that such a war brings no benefit to anyone, considering that this conflict could escalate further and threaten security not only in Ukraine but globally as well.

“Gradually proceeding to the formation of groups that will work on specific steps to restore security. Just like the First Peace Summit held in Switzerland, the groups should be as inclusive as possible so that different countries and leaders can express themselves.”-he said.

He hopes that in the future, more countries will be open to attending the summit and becoming guarantors of peace in Ukraine. Zelenskyy is lobbying worldwide, along with his associates, aware that without the support of major countries, it will be difficult to make any progress towards peace.

The Ukrainian leader thanked allies, noting that Ukrainians had managed to destroy Russian positions near the border with Western weapons. In addition, Zelenskyy thanked Ukrainian soldiers, without whom any success would not have been possible. He emphasized that Russia's offensive is a huge mistake, and that such a response clearly indicates the intentions of the Ukrainian army in the continuation of the war.

“Today, I would like to thank our warriors. Those who were able to turn this page of the war, which Putin intended to dedicate to his offensive but which ended up being another mistake for Russia,” he said.

Zelenskyy emphasized the importance of Ukrainian forces destroying Russian positions and launchers near the border, highlighting that this action is effective and proceeding according to their expectations.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy: Our forces are gradually pushing (Russian troops) out of Kharkiv Oblast

Zelenskyy confirmed yesterday that Ukrainians are gradually pushing Russian forces out of the Kharkiv region. Ukrainian troops have shown courage countless times despite facing a formidable military force that shows no mercy to anyone. Zelenskyy knew that the only way to achieve victory was to have brave soldiers who are patriotically motivated and aware of what it means to achieve victory in this war. The Russian side has shown readiness to take any action necessary to achieve its goals in Ukraine. However, the course of the war changes from day to day, as many factors play a role in this chaos between Russia and Ukraine.

"Our forces are gradually pushing (Russian troops) out of Kharkiv Oblast. And I thank every warrior and every unit for this, who are clearly fulfilling their tasks, including those who are also replenishing our  (prisoner) 'exchange fund' with Russian soldiers," Zelenskyy said.

It's difficult to conclude whether there is panic among Russian ranks, but day by day, this country faces huge challenges, especially concerning sanctions. When the whole world is against you, except for a few countries, it's very difficult to function and expect any prosperity. It seems that Russians have initiated this conflict without much consideration for the consequences, or perhaps they have considered them but still firmly stand behind their ideas. Russian political ideologies have endured for years. Putin clearly aims to be a leader who will shape the history of this country in a specific manner.

Experts and analysts make predictions regarding war, but considering the recklessness of the Russian government and President, it's difficult to make an accurate guess about when this chaos might end.
