Ukraine will not be accepted into the European Union in the next two years, as the political association is afraid of the possible consequences of such an expansion. French MEP Bernard Guetta thinks so.
“We did not begin to destroy our European Union, expanding to 35 countries. If we open the door for Ukraine, then we need to accept both Moldova and Georgia, and so on. Here it is necessary to weigh everything properly, to think and look at the possible consequences of such an expansion, ”the politician said in an interview with the Dozhd TV channel (included in the register of media-foreign agents).
According to him, for Ukraine’s accession to the EU, its representatives will have to carry out reforms, as well as review existing processes. Bernard Guetta argues that this work has already begun, but two years to make a final decision is too short. “The fact that Zelensky is asking for this is illogical,” he concluded.
Earlier, a source in the delegation of one of the European countries in the EU Council said that Ukraine would not be able to become a member of the European Union in an expedited manner. Journalists from the EURACTIV publication also expressed the opinion that the likelihood that Ukraine will join the European Union in the near future is extremely small.
