Ukraine peace summit – level 2

18-06-2024 07:00

World leaders met in Switzerland to discuss peace in Ukraine.

Over 90 countries came, but China and Russia didn’t. This made the meeting less powerful. Russia has its peace plans. The war in Gaza also takes away attention from Ukraine. The leaders talked about food and nuclear safety. Turkey and Saudi Arabia said that Russia needs to join for real progress. The leaders say that Russia is responsible for suffering and damage in Ukraine. Russia must respect Ukraine’s land. Also, Ukraine should control its nuclear power plant and sea ports again. President Zelenskiy was happy with the meeting and said it would help peace.

Difficult words: attention (thought or interest), progress (moving towards a better state), respect (to treat with honor and care).

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