The west is united and behind Ukraine in the ongoing war against Russia, which is close to capturing key cities in Ukraine. It is a concern all over the world with limitations on gas and grain exports.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky hailed the EU decision on his country and Moldova as “a unique and historic moment,” although the two former Soviet republics face a long path before joining the bloc and its benefits of free movement and a common market.

“Ukraine’s future is within the EU,” said Zelensky. “We will win, rebuild, enter the EU and then rest.” Or probably we will not rest. ”

French President Emmanuel Macron said that the decision by EU leaders sent a “very strong signal” to Russia that Europeans support the pro-Western aspirations of Ukraine.
