Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky offered a conditional path to peace talks: Russia must withdraw its troops entirely from Ukraine.

He expressed skepticism about Russian leader Vladimir Putin's willingness to end the war, urging the world to take action to stop him.

These comments follow a recent two-day peace summit in Switzerland. Over 80 countries participated, signing a document that blames Russia for the war and reaffirms Ukraine's right to defend itself.

However, some nations, including India, South Africa and Saudi Arabia, abstained from signing. Notably absent from the summit were Russia itself and its key ally, China.

The summit aimed to build broad international support for a peace process. The final document calls for Russia to relinquish control of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant back to Ukraine.

It explicitly labels Russia's actions as a "war," a term Moscow rejects. Additionally, the document advocates for a prisoner exchange and the return of children abducted by Russia.

More contentious issues, such as the status of occupied territories, are postponed for future discussions.

Following the summit, Zelensky addressed reporters, outlining the conditions for negotiations: "Russia can start negotiations tomorrow if they pull out of our territories."

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte emphasized the international community's united stance on core values: "We are totally united at a shared vision on principles, on values, on decency. You do not invade another country. You do not abduct children. You do not play politics with the world’s food supply. And you do not endanger nuclear safety.”
