The fourth summit of the Council of Europe has endorsed Ukrainian President Zelenskyy’s Peace Formula, showing political support for Ukraine’s interpretation of the plan. The news comes from a correspondent in Reykjavik for “European Truth”.
“Without accountability, there can be no lasting peace, and we support the principles of a fair and lasting peace set out in President Zelenskyy’s Peace Formula,” the document highlights.
The Council of Europe summit thus becomes the first major international forum to officially validate Ukraine’s peace plan. The Council of Europe comprises 46 states.
The text of Zelenskyy’s Peace Formula, consisting of 10 points, was introduced by Ukraine in November of last year.
It’s also noteworthy that at the Council of Europe summit in Reykjavik, 43 countries approved an agreement on a register of damage caused by Russian aggression, paving the way for compensations.
The resolution, adopted by the heads of state and government members of the Council of Europe, expresses “full support for Ukraine and its people” and assures that the world “will stand with Ukraine as long as it takes”. Furthermore, the member states of the Council of Europe emphasized their alignment with Ukraine’s vision for the path to peace.
