Ukraine - Q&A - (12 May 2022)


Q: Hello, Kyiv has acknowledged that EU membership will take time but is asking the EU to officially “hold its spot.” Is that an option, from France’s perspective?

A: As President Macron and the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs have noted repeatedly, Ukraine is part of the European family. I would like to refer you to the President’s remarks in Strasbourg and Berlin.

Ukraine’s request to join the EU, which is being examined by the European Commission, will be discussed by the heads of State and government at the European Council meeting in June.
