Ukraine is not satisfied with the possibilities of membership in the European Union that are presented with it. Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba sues Thursday Twitter On “second-degree treatment by some capitals of the European Union”. According to him, the bad treatment has been going on for several years.
At the end of February, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asked the European Union to accept his country as a member with immediate effect. The Qatari bloc should allow Ukraine to join through a new special procedure.
Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the European Commission, promised the country rapid action in April. During a visit to the European Union in Brussels on Monday, Kuleba called on influential Germany to take the lead.
Kuleba believes that “strategic ambiguity” regarding Ukraine must end. According to the foreign minister, this has not worked out in recent years, rather this policy has made Russia stronger.
Koleba also sees nothing in alternative plans, as French President Emmanuel Macron presented this month. Macron has proposed starting a new European geopolitical community, with countries around the EU such as Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova. His plan was supported by, among others, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Charles Michel, President of the European Council.
France believes that membership can last for decades
The intention of the political community is to increase cooperation on a regular basis with countries outside the European Union that are still waiting for potential membership. Macron predicts that it may take decades for Ukraine to become a member of the European Union. Prime Minister Mark Rutte also believes that there will be no problem anytime soon.
But many countries eager to join the European Union have criticized Macron’s idea, fearing that it will supplant EU membership. Kuleba wrote that such ideas are “harmful to the Ukrainians.”
