Zelensky: The status of an EU candidate is very important for the Ukrainian people

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met via videoconference with President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen. During the conversation, the head of state announced the transfer of the second part of the completed questionnaire for Ukraine to obtain the status of a candidate for membership in the European Union.

He stressed that obtaining the status of a candidate for EU membership by Ukraine is of great importance for the Ukrainian people and our Armed Forces, which defend their native country.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that the second part of the questionnaire was submitted to the Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Matti Maasikas.

“I believe that these answers are also a small victory for our team. We are waiting for the consideration and conclusions of the European Commission. I would like these conclusions to be positive, and thanks to you, the provision of conclusions would be accelerated,” the President of Ukraine said.

In turn, Ursula von der Leyen noted that the European Commission will work hard to review the completed questionnaire, which Ukraine submitted, in order to make a decision in June this year.

“I am very impressed with the speed with which you prepared the answers to our questionnaire. This will encourage the European Commission to work faster,” she said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked for the support provided by the European Union to Ukraine.

“Thank you, Charles Michel and the European Union, who are actively working against the Russian occupation of part of our territory. They work with sanctions, diplomatically, financially, supporting the armament of our state,” he said.
