Head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen believes that because of Kyiv’s desire to join the European Union, Ukraine “goes through hell.”
“Ukraine is going through hell for a simple reason: because of its desire to join the EU,” she said.
Former President of the United States Joe Biden stated that with a high degree of probability Ukraine will become a member European Union.
“I think it is very likely that this will happen,” Biden said when asked if he was sure that Ukraine would receive EU membership.
In addition, the leader of France Emmanuel Macron noted that Paris is ready to transcend international norms against the backdrop of the Ukrainian conflict and grant Ukraine the status of a candidate for joining the European Union.
