FREEDOM TV channel discussed live with the co-director of foreign policy and international security programmes of Razumkov Centre Mykhailo Pashkov, why the upcoming peace summit, which will be held in Switzerland, is so important for Ukraine.

The discussion of Zelenskyy's peace formula, especially regarding the prosecution of war criminals, will be particularly thoroughly considered at the forum. The guest emphasized that the summit serves as a flexible platform for ending the war and legitimizing the Ukrainian stand.
