The G7 countries are silently calling on Volodymyr Zelensky to ease the conditions for security guarantees to Ukraine, which will be offered to the country after the end of the war. This is reported by the Italian edition of La Repubblica, citing its sources.
In addition, his interlocutors report that these states support the idea of holding a summit dedicated to Zelensky's proposed "peace formula". At the same time, G7 members want it to be more acceptable to the "Global South", which includes the developing countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America. In return, Ukraine will be offered to start negotiations on EU membership.
Zelensky's "peace formula" consists of ten points. It includes, among other things, the withdrawal of Russian troops from the internationally recognized territory of Ukraine, the real cessation of all hostilities, the implementation of the UN Charter, the restoration of the country's territorial integrity and world order, as well as the creation of a tribunal for Russia's aggression against Ukraine.
In turn, on May 27, Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Mikhail Galuzin announced the requirements that, from the Russian point of view, must be met in order to start negotiations. In particular, the Russian Federation wants the West to stop supplying weapons to Ukraine, the country would recognize the "new territorial realities", and the Armed Forces of Ukraine would cease hostilities. Galuzin did not forget to mention "demilitarization" and "denazification" as well.
