The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, who visited Kyiv, handed over to President Volodymyr Zelensky a questionnaire that brings Ukraine one step closer to the status of an EU candidate.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Zelensky on Friday, she said that the European Union is ready to support Ukraine in every possible way so that the process of Ukraine's accession to the EU takes weeks, not years.
"We know a lot about each other because we've been working together so intensively over the past years that it's not going to be the same as usual - not years to form that opinion - I think it'll be a matter of weeks if we work together," she said, addressing Volodymyr Zelensky.
She assured her interlocutor that Russia would plunge deeper into economic, financial and technological decline, while Ukraine would march towards a European future.
Having accepted the questionnaire in an envelope from the hands of the head of the European Commission, Zelensky assured journalists that it would be filled out within a week.
