On the 211th day of a large-scale army Russian invasion of Ukraine Russian troops continue to try to capture the neighboring country’s settlements. The forces and units of the territorial defense of Ukraine resist aggression. It is impossible to verify the statements of representatives of both parties from independent sources. About 14 million Ukrainians have already left their homes, according to the UN. DW continues to follow developments Thursday September 22 (Moscow time).
Five Points of the “Formula of the World”in implementation of which it would be possible to end the war in Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, speaking via video link at the UN General Assembly, made public.
The first point, he says, is the punishment for violating borders, including through sanctions, blocking trade with the aggressor country and taking away his right of veto.
The second point is the right of every state to protect the lives of its citizens.
The third point is the restoration of security, including food and nuclear safety, and territorial integrity.
The fourth point is security guarantees.
The fifth point of the “peace formula” is the determination to defend and the determination to help.
“What’s not in our formula is neutrality,” Ukraine’s president stressed, explaining that neutrality is indifference.
