Ukraine's accession to EU: Zelensky, Stefanchuk and Shmyhal sign joint statement

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has signed Ukraine’s Parliament and Government joint statement on achieving full membership in the European Union.

According to an Ukrinform correspondent, the document was signed in the Verkhovna Rada by standing applause.

According to the Head of State, signing the joint statement has the same meaning as signing an application for joining the EU.

“We’ve been approaching the candidacy status for 115 days and our path to membership shouldn’t take decades. We have to get there as quickly as possible. It depends on us. We have to do our part perfectly to enable our friends in the EU to do the same quickly and in a consolidative manner to adopt another historic decision for us,” Zelensky said.
