Kremlin Says Ukraine Peace Summit Produced 'Zero' Results

The Kremlin said Monday that this past weekend's international peace summit on Ukraine produced "zero" results.

Officials from more than 90 countries gathered in Switzerland between Saturday and Sunday, backing Ukraine's territorial integrity but leaving key questions about how to end the war unanswered.

"If we talk about the results of this meeting, then they come down to zero," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

A final communique was supported by most of the countries that attended the summit, but several countries did not sign it, including Saudi Arabia, India and the United Arab Emirates. Russia was not invited to the summit.

"Many countries understood the lack of perspective of any serious discussion without the presence of our country," Peskov said.

He added that Russian President Vladimir Putin was "still open to dialogue and serious discussion."

Last week, Putin said Russia would only join peace talks if Ukraine gave up four of its regions, effectively demanding that it surrender in the war.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
