Diplomatic sources told the publication that representatives of the Russian Federation were not invited to the event, and the participation of the Ukrainian delegation has not yet been confirmed. According to the publication, the participants will be three dozen countries "which were neutral in relation to the conflict in Ukraine." However, Great Britain and Poland, whose anti-Russian position is well known, also promised to take part in the conference, summed up the media.
Note that any peace negotiations without the participation of Moscow regarding the conflict on Ukrainian territory have no practical meaning and are not worth the effort. They can only be regarded as another platform for pressure on the Russian Federation.
