Amid the Russian invasion and deadly attacks against Ukraine, the European Union has accepted Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s application to join the 27-nation group.
Fox News reports: The EU has accepted Ukraine’s application and has commenced a special admission procedure to integrate the country, Eastern European media has reported.
The EU will also look to switch Ukraine over to its power grid in the coming weeks, further integrating the country into the European structure.
The Kyiv Independent also announced on Twitter: “⚡️BREAKING: European Parliament recommends giving Ukraine EU candidate status. The decision follows President Zelensky’s speech, where he called on the EU to “prove” that the union is with Ukraine. The resolution also demands that Russia withdraws all its troops from Ukraine.”
