The EC’s assessment of Ukraine’s EU bid to be finalized by the end of next week – EC president

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen arrived in Kyiv Saturday on her second visit since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine to discuss with President Volodymyr Zelensky the country’s bid to join the EU.

“The discussions today will enable us to finalize our assessment [the EC opinion regarding Ukraine’s application] by the end of next week,” the EC president said.

Speaking to the media, von der Leyen called Ukraine a “solid, well-grounded, parliamentary-presidential system” despite the “incredible circumstances.” “To get me right, Ukraine is at war, so your focus and our support is in overcoming this atrocious horrible war,” she said.
