Ihor Zhovkva: More than 70 countries share the Ukrainian philosophy of the Peace Formula already

Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Ihor Zhovkva met with a delegation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Sweden.

The parties focused on the implementation of agreements following President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's recent visit to Sweden.

Separately, the parties discussed the situation in Ukraine and ways to restore its territorial integrity in view of Russia's ongoing full-scale armed aggression against our country. In this context, the interlocutors discussed in detail the security component of bilateral cooperation between Ukraine and Sweden.

Ihor Zhovkva thanked for the significant comprehensive assistance to our country, especially noting the leadership in creating the CV90 coalition, as well as the opportunity for Ukrainian pilots to test the Swedish JAS 39 Gripen fighter jets.

"We are grateful to Sweden for 13 defense assistance packages and the transfer of several dozen CV90 infantry fighting vehicles, which have already proven to be highly effective on the battlefield. We look forward to expanding their supply to the Ukrainian defense forces, as well as launching joint production of these vehicles in accordance with the joint Statement of Intent on enhanced cooperation on the CV90 platform recently signed by the leaders of the two countries," the Deputy Head of the Presidential Office emphasized.

The parties also focused on the practical implementation of the Peace Formula proposed by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The diplomats discussed in detail the Ukrainian side's vision of the implementation of each point of the Formula, as well as Sweden's role in this process.

"We appreciate Sweden's activity in developing the basis for the practical implementation of each of the 10 points of the Ukrainian Peace Formula at the level of ambassadors, national security advisors and political advisors. Today, more than 70 countries share the Ukrainian philosophy of the Peace Formula already. We are looking forward to Sweden's participation in the inaugural Global Summit on the implementation of the Ukrainian Peace Formula," said Ihor Zhovkva.

The interlocutors also discussed the concept of providing Ukraine with security guarantees from Sweden until our country joins the North Atlantic Alliance. In this context, the Deputy Head of the Presidential Office thanked Sweden for joining the Joint Declaration of the G7 leaders on support for Ukraine (security guarantees) and expressed hope for its active participation in the restoration of our country.
