Working on Peace Formula for Ukraine: Fourth meeting of national security advisors begins in Davos

14 January, 2024 Sunday

National security advisers aim to address five key objectives: Russian troop withdrawal, restoring justice, ensuring environmental security, preventing escalation and the recurrence of war, and achieving the end of the war.

Andriy Yermak, the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, shared this information.

He stated, "Today in Davos, discussions revolve around global order and justice. Switzerland, a recent participant in advisor-level consultations, has quickly become an active contributor."

Details of the meeting

Yermak, during the meeting's commencement, addressed the repercussions of recent extensive rocket attacks by Russia on Ukrainian cities, highlighting civilian casualties and infrastructure damage. 

He stressed that a mere ceasefire wouldn't conclude Russian aggression but would only provide a respite for the Russian Federation to regather strength.

"This isn't the path to peace. Russians seek dominance, not peace. The choice is clear: lose and disappear or win and thrive. We choose to fight," emphasized Yermak.

He further emphasized that restoring international law and Ukraine's territorial integrity is crucial to prevent any aggressor worldwide from seizing territories and conducting sham elections. The sought-after peace by Ukraine must assure survival, integrity, sovereignty, development, and a barrier against future aggression.

"Together, we've established a comprehensive framework for achieving such peace, with interconnected elements. This is the only way," added the President's Office head.

Yermak highlighted that the Davos meeting is a logical extension of the Malta meeting, where the initial five points of the Ukrainian Peace Formula were discussed, covering nuclear security, food and energy security, the release of prisoners (especially children), and the restoration of territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.


Objectives of the meeting

In Davos, national security advisers aim to address five key objectives. These include the withdrawal of Russian troops, restoring justice, ensuring environmental security, preventing the escalation and recurrence of war, and confirming the end of the war. Each of these points will be presented by the co-leaders of the respective Formula tracks, building on discussions from the previous meeting in Malta.

Advisers will also work towards an agreement on the format of the Global Peace Summit.

"We need a platform to solidify specific aspects of our comprehensive plan. To progress, we must finalize the format of the Global Peace Formula Summit. Finding an acceptable option is crucial for developing detailed roadmaps for each Formula point. Leading countries in each area can host thematic conferences to finalize implementation algorithms," explained Yermak.

Additionally, two special sessions in Davos will focus on developing the points of the Peace Formula presented in Malta, specifically addressing food security and humanitarian aspects of the war.


Countries collaborate on the Ukrainian Peace Formula

The head of the President's Office reported an increased participation of 81 countries and international organizations in the fourth meeting, compared to 66 in the previous Malta meeting. Delegates from 39 European countries, 18 Asian countries, 12 African countries, and 6 South American countries, as well as 3 North American and 2 Oceania countries, are part of the Davos discussions.

"A positive indication is the growing number of countries engaging in the joint action plan based on the Ukrainian Peace Formula. The inclusion of Global South regions highlights the understanding that this European conflict is a challenge for all of humanity," noted Yermak.

He expressed gratitude to World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab, WEF President Børge Brende, and Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis for their support.

  • On October 28, the third meeting in Malta addressed issues such as nuclear, food, and energy security, along with the release of captured and deported Ukrainians. 
  • Volodymyr Zelenskyy is set to personally attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, from January 15 to 19, 2024.
