Zelensky: Ukraine deserves EU membership talks in 2023

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated on Thursday that the European Union should agree to begin membership talks with his country before the end of 2023.

"I believe that Ukraine deserves to start negotiations on EU membership this year," Zelensky said amid EU officials' visit to the war-torn country.

Ukraine applied for membership in the bloc after Russia launched its attack on Ukraine last year and the EU granted it candidate status but stressed the country needs to carry out "a number of important reforms," including addressing corruption, before it can join the bloc.
