Quote from the press service: "Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasised that Ukraine strives to achieve peace and noted the importance of consolidating international efforts to achieve this goal. It was for this purpose during the G-20 summit that the President of Ukraine presented the Peace Formula, which includes 10 critical steps, the implementation of which would make it possible to stop this war.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy outlined the vision of the Ukrainian side, regarding further work in this important direction, and came forward [suggesting] the initiative to convene a Global Peace Summit."
Details: Zelenskyy thanked Biden for another defence aid package, announced on 9 December, as well as for consistently supporting Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and for his leadership in consolidating international efforts to counter Russian aggression.
Zelenskyy informed Biden about the consequences of the Russian missile terror that has destroyed about 50% of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. The Ukrainian president praised the aid that the United States has allocated for the reconstruction of Ukraine's energy grid.
Zelensky also called on Biden to do everything possible to help protect the civilian population of Ukraine and the country’s critical infrastructure.
Andriy Yermak reported on the telephone conversation between the presidents of Ukraine and the USA on Twitter in a unique way. He posted a missile emoji, possibly hinting at new military aid from the United States.
