President Volodymyr Zelensky has announced the readiness of three more EU member states to sign a declaration of support for Ukraine's European integration as the President’s Office reported.
“We started this year to prepare bilateral declarations with EU countries to support Ukraine’s European prospects. When Ukraine and the EU countries decide that Ukraine can be a member of the EU, then this or that country with which we sign this declaration will definitely vote for us," Zelensky said.
He recalled that four European Union countries have already signed such declarations, and three more documents will be signed in the near future. After that, the number of EU states that have come out in favor of granting Ukraine membership in the bloc will increase to seven.
According to the president, there are countries with which it will be necessary to work more on this issue. The main task along this path is to ensure that all 27 EU member states support Ukraine's European prospects.
On May 3, the joint declaration was signed by the leaders of Ukraine and Poland on Warsaw's support for Kyiv's European aspirations.
Lithuania was the first country to sign the joint declaration states support of the European prospect of Ukraine.
The last country that signed the declaration on the European prospect of Ukraine was Latvia.
