He wrote about this on Telegram.

According to Zelenskyy, global security is impossible when the world's largest country ignores recognised borders, international law and the UN Charter, blackmails with hunger, darkness and nuclear weapons.

The president emphasised that restoring a just peace in Ukraine, ensuring global food and nuclear security were the tasks of the Global Peace Summit in Switzerland, so it would be important to hear the voice of the Asia-Pacific region there.

"In Singapore, I will speak at a conference and hold a number of meetings, including with President of Singapore Tharman Shanmugaratnam and Prime Minister Lawrence Wong, President Timor-Leste Jose Ramos-Horta, US Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin, and Singaporean investors," he added.

Zelenskyy later informed that he had met with Indonesian President Prabowo Subianto on the sidelines of the Shangri-La Dialogue to discuss the implementation of the Peace Formula and areas of bilateral cooperation. 

The main topics of the talks were progress in the implementation of the Peace Formula and areas of bilateral cooperation.

"We look forward to Indonesia's participation in the first Global Peace Summit at the highest level and to support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine," the president said.

Peace Summit: details and features of the event

On February 26, Switzerland announced its intention to hold a peace summit in Ukraine by the summer. The Kremlin said that organising such an event without Russia was "not serious and even ridiculous".

On March 18, Chinese Ambassador to Switzerland Wang Shihting said that China was considering participating in the Peace Summit organised by Switzerland at Ukraine's request.

On May 2, the Swiss Foreign Ministry said that Russia should take part in the Peace Summit, as "a peace process without Russia is unthinkable". However, Moscow was not invited to the event this year.

On the same day, Ukrainian President Zelenskyy said that the Summit would be the first real chance to restore peace.

The Peace Summit is expected to develop a common negotiating position for Ukraine, which will be submitted to the top leadership of Russia, according to the spokesman for the President of Ukraine, Serhiy Nikiforov. 

On Sunday, May 26, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that more than 80 countries had already confirmed their participation in the Peace Summit to be held in Switzerland on June 15-16.
