“This is indeed a demonstration that the world is interested in justice and Ukraine's victory," he said, adding that Russian claims about a loss of interest in Ukraine were not true.

The head of the President’s Office also provided details of the issues to be discussed in Malta, noting that this meeting is "about specifics."

The gathering will present and discuss "concrete plans" for the implementation of five points of the 10-point Peace Formula: nuclear safety, energy security, food security, humanitarian issues (release of prisoners and deportees), and the restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity and world order.

These plans were developed by working groups that included representatives of the embassies and experts from different countries, Yermak said.

The goal is to hold a Global Peace Summit at the level of state leaders.

On Oct. 28 and 29, Malta hosts the third meeting on the Ukrainian Peace Formula at the level of advisors to the heads of state. Previous meetings were held in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Ukraine also intends to organize a global summit on the Peace Formula.
