Russia Does Not Attend Peace Conference in Switzerland in June

Switzerland confirmed it will host a two-day high-level conference in mid-June to achieve peace in Ukraine. The conference will be organized at the luxury hotel Bürgenstock near Lucerna from June 15-16.

However, Russia has clarified that it will not attend, considering that Switzerland has lost its status as a neutral country. Switzerland, a favourite banking destination of the Russian oligarchs, has just adopted a law which allows the state to use the Russian money in the Swiss banks to help Ukraine. USD 8 Billion of the Russian citizens are deposited in Swiss Banks.

The conference’s objective will be to create a favourable framework for a comprehensive and lasting peace in Ukraine and “a concrete road map for Russia’s participation in the peace process.”

The question arises: What’s the point of having a peace conference on the Ukraine-Russia war if one of the states doesn’t attend? How can peace be obtained if Russia or Ukraine do not sit at the same negotiation table?

Meanwhile, the situation on the Eastern Ukraine’s front is terrible, as the allied countries, especially the US, send fewer weapons and ammunition to Ukraine. The US’s intricate political games in Washington block a direct weapon supply, while in Europe, Germany refused to send the promised rockets to Ukraine, saying they fear an attack from Russia.

The last talks between Moscow and Kyiv since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, took place in Istanbul in March of that year.
