Earlier, the media reported that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky would meet with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on Wednesday, September 20.

The Guardian wrote that Lula had angered some Western leaders who support Ukraine's fight against Russia by refusing to take a clear position on the war.

Lula attempted to position himself as a potential peace mediator between Ukraine and Russia, arguing that "some countries must remain neutral if peace is to be achieved".
