Ukraine must fulfill several conditions in order to join the EU


The European Commission listed several conditions that Ukraine must fulfill in order to have the status of a candidate for joining the European Union. This was announced today, June 19, RIA Novosti reports.

According to the agency, the conditions include the implementation of judicial reform, the introduction of laws that prevent corruption, oligarchy, money laundering. In addition, Ukraine must change the legislation on national minorities and harmonize the media law with the EU directive on audiovisual media services.

“The accession process is still based on established criteria and conditions. This allows any country involved in the process to progress based on its own achievements. At the same time, this means that the status of an EU candidate can be canceled if the basic conditions are not met, ”the European Commission said.

Earlier, the EC recommended granting Ukraine and Moldova the status of candidates for the European Union. A final decision by community leaders is expected at the summit, which will be held on June 23 and 24.

Croatia was the last country to join the European Union in 2013. It took ten years for her application to be considered. Albania has been an EU candidate since 2014. And since 1999 – Turkey.
