Zelenskyy will also hold bilateral meetings in Davos with both EU and NATO members to bolster the dynamics of Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic integration, and meet with leaders of states and prominent businesses to fortify Ukraine's defense and economic resilience.

The Ukrainian Peace Formula meeting at the national security advisor level kicked off in Davos on Jan. 14, featuring representatives from 81 countries and international organizations.

The meeting discussed five of the ten points of the Ukrainian peace formula, namely: the withdrawal of Russian troops, the restoration of justice, environmental security, the prevention of escalation, and the confirmation of the end of the war.

Zelenskyy first presented the 10-point peace formula in Nov. 2022 at the G20 summit. The formula lays out a path to ending Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, including the restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, the withdrawal of Russian troops, the release of all detainees, a tribunal for those responsible for aggression, and security guarantees for Ukraine.
