After the Normandy format meeting in Paris in December last year, ceasefire in Donbas has not been achieved yet, but the war will end as soon as all parties to the conflict want it, as stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
“We have not yet been able to achieve complete ceasefire and still lose our citizens. But I'm not accidentally saying "yet." I am sure that if all parties want to end the war, it will end tomorrow. Ukraine defends its land,” the President said, answering the question by WEF founder Klaus Schwab at a public session in Davos.
At the same time, the Head of State reminded that, despite the blocking of the Normandy format summit in previous years, the meeting of the leaders of the "Normandy Four" still took place. And at the end of last year, an important agreement on the release of 76 illegally detained Ukrainians was implemented.
“I am really pleased that due to our team, after three years of blocking the Normandy format meeting, this meeting was finally held in December. I am grateful to the partners - both Germany and France - for supporting this meeting,” he said.
