Details: Zelenskyy thanked foreign diplomats for staying in Ukraine during Russia’s full-scale invasion and stressed the need to make efforts in 2024 to bring an end to the war.


The president explained that to achieve this, Kyiv plans to continue working on receiving defensive, financial and humanitarian assistance from foreign partners to protect Ukrainians from terror. 

The second task of Ukraine, Zelenskyy added, is to promote the Ukrainian Peace Formula and hold the first Global Peace Summit at the level of world leaders.

The third task Zelenskyy mentioned was strengthening defence cooperation and increasing sanctions pressure on Russia, including using frozen Russian assets.
