The European Commission president, Ursula von der Leyen, has told Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, that the EU executive’s opinion on Ukraine’s request to join the bloc would be ready by the end of next week.

Their meeting, which took place during Von der Leyen’s second visit to Kyiv since Russia launched its invasion in February, “will enable us to finalise our assessment by the end of next week,” she said. A recommendation as a candidate for membership, however, would only be a preliminary step. All 27 EU governments would have to agree on granting Ukraine candidate status, after which extensive talks on reforms would be required before membership

We can use Russia's frozen assets to rebuild Ukraine. Glad to have some true heroes in europe, who will stand up to tyranny and hatred. Putin is going to roll over in his grave when he sees the beatiful, rich european country Ukraine will become. Whereas he doomed Russia by incuring economic sanctions from every country that can afford it, for a war that was completely unecessary.

This is completely crazy and out of this world. Ukraine never met the requirements before this phase of the war to think that now can become part of the EU its simply ridiculous.
