Ukraine in the European Union?

Diplomats said the European Commission would recommend that the European Union consider Ukraine and Moldova as candidates to join the bloc, with Georgia required to meet certain conditions before being granted the same status.

While some EU countries, including the Netherlands and Denmark, do not support the candidacy of more countries for membership, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has the support of France, Germany, Italy and Romania.

The status of a candidate for European Union membership, which Ukraine has been seeking since 2014, when protests in Kyiv ousted a pro-Russian president, would be a milestone on its way to transforming from a former Soviet republic into an advanced economy in the world’s largest trading bloc.
