President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who is in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg after attending a two-day Second Russia-Africa summit, has met with a committee of the African peace initiative on the crisis in Ukraine that recently met Ukrainian President H.E Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Russian President Vladimir Putin in an attempt to broker and end the conflict in Ukraine.
Although President Museveni was one of the African leaders who were nominated to be part of the African peace initiative on Ukraine, he was unable to travel for the peace mission due to health complications and was represented by his Special Envoy and former Prime Minister, Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda.
The committee which include the Presidents of South Africa, Senegal, Zambia, Comoros Islands and other senior officials from African governments last month met President Putin and President Zelenskyy separately in their respective countries with a view of pushing for the end to the conflict in Ukraine.
During the meeting President Museveni was briefed on the progress made by the committee of African leaders in the quest for peace and the end of the conflict in Ukraine. They also shared the different views and sentiments held by the warring factions in Ukraine.
President Museveni reiterated his commitment to continue working with the committee so as to ensure that a peaceful and amicable solution is realised in Ukraine for the good of the people of Ukraine, Russia, the region and the world.
