World leaders attend a working session on food and energy security during the G20 Summit in Nusa Dua, Indonesia, on November 15, 2022.

Zelenskyy virtually addressed world leaders at the G20 summit in Bali on Tuesday. 
He told them that Russia’s war must end, and proposed a 10-step peace plan. 
The plan includes ensuring nuclear and food safety, and an “all for all” prisoner swap.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Tuesday laid out a 10-point peace plan for peace, which includes the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine and an “all for all” prisoner swap.
