The government expects Ukraine to be granted EU candidate status in June
Olga Stefanishina, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, said that Ukraine could receive the status of a candidate to the European Union in June.
Stefanishina commented on this on Twitter on Saturday, "Evropeyska Pravda" writes.
"Ukraine has received a questionnaire for EU membership. We have already done a lot of preparatory work, so we are ready to act quickly. We expect to receive candidate status in June," Stefanishina wrote.
Stefanishina's expectations are based on the fact that a summit of European Union leaders is scheduled for June, where a decision can be made.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen officially handed over a questionnaire to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Friday, which is a necessary step in granting Ukraine EU candidate status.
