💙💛 What does EU membership mean for Ukraine?
Ukraine received the status of a candidate for the European Union. This means that reforms and changes in legislation are recognized as successful and close to European standards.
🔹Aviation and energy “visa-free” agreements have already been signed with Ukraine. In particular, Ukraine disconnected from the energy system of Russia and Belarus and became part of the European ENSTO-E network. At the same time, it exports electricity to Europe.
🔸Ukraine, as a candidate, is waiting for the conclusion of agreements on transport, customs, and digital visa-free travel. Ukraine has also begun integration into the internal market of the EU.
🔹The candidacy will connect Ukraine with various EU programs and funds, as well as attract new investments, as businesses will now consider Ukraine as a potential EU member and a promising platform for start-ups.
The further entry of our country into the EU will be beneficial to all parties. Ukraine can guarantee European food security, help accelerate the transition to green energy and reduce energy dependence on Russia, and make a significant contribution to the economic development and digitalization of Europe.Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal
