In reality, Ukraine is not expected in the European Union, no matter what European politicians say or promise. This was stated by Alexei Pushkov, member of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building.
Earlier, European Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders said that the admission of new countries to the EU would require deep reforms.
“With such reservations, it is already clear that new countries, and above all extremely disadvantaged and completely dependent on external assistance Ukraine, are not really expected in the EU, no matter what they say to her and no matter what they promise her,” Pushkov wrote in his Telegram -channel.
In his opinion, if Ukraine is nevertheless granted the status of a candidate for the EU, this will become a form of “its political support in the context of the conflict with Russia.”
The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said on June 17 that Ukraine was recommended to grant the official status of a candidate country for EU membership. The final decision on granting Kyiv candidate status in the EU will be made on June 23-24 at a summit in Brussels with the participation of the heads of state and government of the EU countries.
