Kyiv: Ok to enter Italy
– “The question of the guarantors is open – says the chief Ukrainian negotiator Mikhailo Podolyak – everyone can participate. And Italy is interested in participating. We would be very grateful to Italy if it did. It is a treaty that can build a new treaty. The global security architecture.” And about the possibility of a meeting between Putin and Zelensky, he stressed that he “sees the possibility of reaching an agreement in principle,” adding that “there could be a meeting at the level of presidents.”
“Guarantors are obligated to defend us.”
– The head of the Ukrainian negotiating delegation, David Arachhamia, said in an interview with RBC that the security guarantees requested by Ukraine from a number of countries provided for automatic intervention in the event of an “attack in any form”. With the signing of the security agreement, “the guarantor states must be obligated, after consultations to a maximum of 72 hours, to provide the necessary assistance in the form of weapons and intervention by armed forces or others,” he adds, explaining that the “legal basis” for intervention in the defense of Ukraine is guaranteed by Ratification of the parliaments of the guarantor countries.
Phone call from Zelensky-Draghi
– A few days ago, in a phone call between Mario Draghi and Volodymyr Zelensky, the two leaders specifically discussed the hypothesis that Italy could enter the circle of states guaranteeing security in the event of a peace agreement: the Prime Minister reiterated the firm Rome’s support for Kyiv, guaranteeing Its full desire to “promote a lasting solution to the crisis in Ukraine”, that is, to be part of the group of countries that act as guarantor of the agreement.
