The panelists in the discussion acknowledged that the US, Ukraine, and Russia are currently not interested in a ceasefire because they each believe that they can achieve military victory. However, there is hope for negotiations on specific issues like grain exports and prisoner exchanges. China and Brazil were seen as potential mediators, but the US has not presented a peace plan and rejected China's proposal. It was suggested that individuals or organizations, rather than the UN or countries, could potentially broker a ceasefire after summer offensives. Arbitration was deemed ineffective due to the lack of clarity on what to arbitrate. It was emphasized that Ukraine would need a guarantor after a settlement.
