Zelensky: Ukraine ‘ready to work to become a full EU member’

Ukraine is ready to work to become a full European Union member, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says after four visiting EU leaders publicly backed Kyiv’s bid to join the bloc.

“We are ready to work for our state to become a full member of the EU,” Zelensky says ahead of an EU leaders summit next week at which Kyiv’s application to become a candidate for membership is likely to be given a green light.

“Ukrainians have already earned the right to go down this road and obtain this candidate status.”
