Ukraine has completed the second part of the questionnaire to obtain candidate status for European Union (EU) membership, coinciding with the celebration of Europe Day, the country’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, said today.

On his Telegram channel, also reported by Ukrinform news agency, Zelensky said he had spoken via video conference with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and showed her a full document on the application.

“Meeting with the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, by video link. I show her the second part of the full questionnaire for Ukraine’s candidate status for membership in the European Union,” said in his message the Ukrainian president, who thanked von der Leyen for “clear signs of support on this important path for us.”

Last April 18 Zelensky handed over to the head of the European Union delegation Matti Maasikas the first complete part of the questionnaire for Ukraine to receive the status of candidate for EU membership.

This followed the steps and deadlines set by the President of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen, who met with Zelensky in Kyiv on April 8. There she gave the Ukrainian leader the form, with the commitment to process it, once completed, during the following week.

The Ukrainian authorities are now awaiting “a positive response” to the request from Brussels.

Kyiv hopes that the application will be dealt with at the next EU summit on June 23-24 and that the status of the applicant for EU membership will be recognized.

Zelensky stressed at that meeting that his country’s accession to the EU “represents the aspirations for which our people are fighting” and that the goal was “to be part of Europe, among equals.”
