With Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine still ongoing and the risk of further escalation ever-present, it is more crucial than ever for the United States and the rest of the international community to understand and back Kyiv’s efforts for a just and lasting peace through support for President Zelenskyy’s 10-point peace formula.

On December 5, USIP hosted a conversation with Andriy Yermak, head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, on President Zelensky’s 10-point peace plan and how the United States can help reinforce Ukraine’s ability to set the terms for peace and assert its sovereignty after the war on the battlefield is over.

On Friday, terrorists attacked the Crocus City Hall outside Moscow leaving 140 people dead and 80 others critically wounded. Soon after, the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack. The terrorist group, which is headquartered in Iraq and Syria, has several branches, including in South and Central Asia. Press reports suggest the U.S. government believes the Afghanistan-based affiliate of the Islamic State, ISIS-Khorasan (ISIS-K), was behind the attack. The Biden administration has publicly noted that it had warned the Russian government of the terrorism threat in early March in line with the procedure of “Duty to Warn.”
