Quote: "The Head of State [Zelenskyy – ed.] expressed hope for the involvement of as many countries as possible, particularly those of the Global South, in the Global Peace Summit to be held this year. He thanked Emmanuel Macron for his diplomatic efforts aimed at ending Russia's war against Ukraine and achieving a just peace based on the Ukrainian Peace Formula."

More details: Zelenskyy has said that Ukraine is expecting firm political decisions at the NATO Vilnius summit and expressed hope that negotiations on Ukraine's accession to the EU will begin in 2023.

"We expect the Alliance to make concrete decisions on a clear algorithm of Ukraine's movement towards NATO membership and on guaranteeing the security of our country for the period until membership," the President of Ukraine noted.

Background: In the coming weeks, France will hand over dozens of armoured vehicles and light tanks, including AMX-10RCs, to several Ukrainian battalions.
