Ukraine has already completed the form to be recognized as an applicant country to join the European Union (EU), reports the Ukrinform portal, which cites sources close to the country’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky.
This followed the steps and deadlines set by the President of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen, continues this source, which recalls the recent visit of the German politician to Kyiv, where she met with Zelensky.
The Ukrainian authorities now expect “a positive response” to the request from Brussels.
Kyiv hopes that the application will be addressed at the next EU summit, between June 23 and 24, and that the status of an applicant to join the EU bloc will be recognized.
Von der Leyen met with Zelensky in Kyiv on April 8. There he gave the Ukrainian leader the aforementioned form, with the commitment to process it, once completed, during the following week.
