Ukraine Moves One Step Closer To EU Membership

Obinwannem News Ukraine Moves One Step Closer To EU Membership

The European Commission has backed Ukraine’s bid to be given candidacy status to join the EU, bringing it one step closer to joining the bloc.

European Commission President, Ursula Von Der Leyen said Good work has been done by Ukraine, but more is needed.

She said Ukraine must make important reforms on rule of law, oligarchs, human rights and tackling corruption.

The recommendation from the European Commission still needs to be signed off by the EU’s 27 member states, who will meet to discuss it next week.

The French, German and Italian leaders have already backed Ukraine’s bid, but the decision must be unanimous.
