OREANDA-NEWS  Finnish President Alexander Stubb will visit Switzerland to participate in the summit on Ukraine. This is reported on the website of the office of the head of state.

The aim of the summit is to develop a common understanding of the path to a "just and lasting peace in Ukraine," the message says. The parties will discuss the short- and long-term stages of the peace process, as well as questions about who should be involved in them. The conference will be held on the initiative of the Ukrainian side.

Earlier, the UN announced that its Secretary-General Antonio Guterres would not take part in the summit on Ukraine, which will be held on June 15-16 at the resort of Burgenstock in Switzerland.

Russian Senator Alexei Pushkov, in turn, noted that the absence of the Secretary General is the "most recent" signal that the event will become nothing more than a political formality.

The Swiss government reported that delegations from more than 160 countries were invited to the "peace summit". The conference will be based on discussions that have taken place in recent months. In particular, the "formula for peace" of Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky will be discussed.
