Ukrainian President Zelenskyy during the G20 summit on Nov. 15 presented a ten-point peace formula, which includes the restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity, the withdrawal of Russian troops, the release of all prisoners, a tribunal for those guilty of aggression, and security guarantees for Ukraine.

On the same day, Russia launched another massive missile strike at Ukrainian cities in almost all regions. The G20 meeting was also overshadowed by a missile falling on the territory of Poland.

The missile impact killed two people. It was later reported that the missile was from a Ukrainian S-300 air defense system.

Russia has been waging a full-scale war against Ukraine for more than nine months, since Feb. 24. The invaders are shelling Ukrainian cities in all regions, targeting residential buildings, hospitals, and civilian infrastructure.
