“In Kyiv, for my 3rd visit since the start of Russia’s war. So much has changed. Ukraine is now a EU candidate.
“I’ll discuss with Volodymyr Zelensky and Denys Shmyhal how to continue getting our economies and people closer while Ukraine progresses towards accession,” President of the EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen wrote on Twitter.
According to a story in AP, “European Union Commission Chief Ursula von der Leyen announced a visit to Kyiv later Wednesday to show the bloc’s support for Ukraine as it fights back against the Russian invasion.”
“Dressed in the colors of Ukraine, von der Leyen said in her State of the European Union address that the bloc would come to the aid of Ukraine by opening its seamless single market more to Ukrainian products and said she would ‘discuss all this with President (Volodymyr) Zelenskyy.”
