The twenty-third Ukraine-EU summit has begun in Kiev, within the framework of which a number of bilateral agreements will be signed, the press service of the office of the President of Ukraine reports.
The press service noted that before the start of the event, Volodymyr Zelenskyy talked with the heads of EU institutions.
In addition, on the eve of the summit, the Verkhovna Rada confirmed Ukraine’s intention to become a member of the European Union, and also called on partners to recognize this prospect.
Ukraine began its policy of integration with the West after a coup d’etat in 2014; in February 2019, the Ukrainian parliament adopted amendments to the constitution, securing the country’s course towards joining the EU and NATO.
EU Ambassador to Ukraine Hugh Mingarelli, in turn, said that Kiev currently has no prospects of joining the European Union.
