European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen stated that russia could be included in the peace process once it expresses a readiness for peace based on the UN Charter. Von der Leyen made this announcement at a briefing following the first Peace Summit in Switzerland, as reported by European Pravda.

The EC President urged russia to heed the global community's call to respect Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty, end the violence, and return Ukrainian children.

"When russia declares its readiness for peace based on the UN Charter, then the time will come to involve it in peace efforts. And I hope this happens quickly", - said Ursula von der Leyen.

She emphasized that achieving peace in Ukraine will not be a single-step process but a journey, and that kremlin leader putin is not serious about ending the war.

"He insists on capitulation, the surrender of Ukrainian territories, even those not currently occupied, and the disarmament of Ukraine, leaving it vulnerable to further aggression", - the European Commission President noted.

Von der Leyen stressed that no country would ever accept such dreadful conditions, highlighting the crucial importance of Ukraine being able to resist russian aggression.

Previously, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the negotiations in Istanbul in 2022 were unsuccessful due to russian ultimatums.
