Von der Leyen defends Ukraine’s accession to the European Union

It is the first time that a European official has expressed such an assertive opinion.

Ursula Von der Leyen says Ukraine should be part of the European Union. In an interview with Euronews, the president of the European Commission said that Ukraine “is part of us, it is one of us, we want them to enter”.

Statements made after a call with Volodymyr Zelensky about the long-standing discussion of Ukraine’s membership of the European Union.

Until now, European officials had been reticent on the matter and had never expressed such an assertive opinion.
