Ukraine war: Macron, Scholz and Draghi back EU candidate status for Ukraine

Euronews says Ukraine should be given candidate status for European Union membership, Emmanuel Macron, Olaf Scholz and Mario Draghi affirmed on Thursday during a visit to Kyiv.

Granting the status to Ukraine is “a strong, quick, expected gesture of hope and clarity that we want to send to Ukraine and its people,” the French leader said during a joint press conference following a meeting with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in the late afternoon.

He stressed however that the status would be accompanied by a “roadmap” that would include “conditions”.

The leaders of France, Germany, and Italy arrived in Kyiv after a 10-hour train journey from south-east Poland for their first visit in the war-torn country – a delay that had drawn criticism at home and in eastern EU member states.
