“It’s a little country with a strong devotion to liberty,” says the author. It is prepared to act as a behind-the-scenes mediator or host negotiations,” the Swiss president underlined.

Zelenskyy, on the other hand, criticized the fact that Swiss companies such as Nestle continue to operate in Russia.

After the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) requested assistance in defending themselves against Kyiv forces, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine in the early hours of February 24.

Russia maintains that the goal of its special operation is to demilitarise and “denazify” Ukraine and that it is only targeting military facilities, with no civilians in danger. Moscow has stated unequivocally that it does not intend to occupy Ukraine.

In reaction to Russia’s operation, Western countries have launched a broad sanctions campaign against Moscow, including airspace restrictions and restrictive measures aimed at a variety of Russian politicians and businesses, as well as the media and financial institutions.
