The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, demanded this Saturday (12) that the European Union (EU) say clearly whether or not his country will be able to enter the bloc of Twenty-Seven. “We think we deserve to be in the European Union and we have nothing to promise. We need specific support,” Zelensky told an international news conference, according to the agency. Ukrainian press Unian.

A day earlier, EU leaders had ruled out, after a two-day bloc summit, a quick Ukraine membership. “We are at war today, and the answers to all the questions we ask the world we want to hear today,” Zelensky replied.

Confident “100% that we will have a victory” in the war, although he does not know when, the president affirmed the existence of positive signs on the Russian side in the ongoing negotiations. “Now the Russian side, in the negotiations, has started talking about things and not just giving ultimatums. I think that’s a fundamentally different approach. And so it should be,” he said. .

For the Ukrainian president, any solution must begin with a ceasefire. “This will unblock humanitarian processes, evacuate people, as well as deliver food and water,” he said.
