European Union leaders have agreed to make Ukraine a candidate for EU member states, potentially moving the embarrassed nations further away from Russia’s influence and more closely linked to the West, potentially years. We have started a process that spans.
Ukraine applied for membership less than a week after Moscow invaded on February 24th. The block decision of 27 countries to give Ukrainian candidate status on Thursday was uncharacteristically fast.
