Ukraine peace summit – level 1

18-06-2024 07:00

World leaders meet in Switzerland. They talk about peace in Ukraine.

More than 90 countries are there. But China and Russia are not. This makes the meeting less powerful. Russia has its peace ideas. The war in Gaza also takes away attention from Ukraine. Leaders talk about food and nuclear safety. Turkey and Saudi Arabia say that Russia needs to join the talks. Russia makes the problems in Ukraine. Ukraine must have its land back. Ukraine should control its nuclear power plant and sea ports again.

President Zelenskiy is happy with the meeting. He says that it will help bring peace.

Difficult words: peace (the time without a war), powerful (strong), attention (interest).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What countries were not present at the meeting in Switzerland and how did their absence affect the power of the meeting?
