A watershed report from the European Union's executive bodies assessing Ukraine's fulfillment of accession criteria is set to be published on November 8, with the document providing a pivotal step in Kyiv's efforts to take its relationship with Brussels to the next level.
It is expected that Ukraine will "receive a positive recommendation" when fulfilling a number of conditions related to the fight against corruption and respect for the rights of minorities (Hungary insists on considering this issue).
Ukraine acquired the status of a candidate country for joining the European Union in 2022. At the same time, the European Commission provided Ukraine with an action plan that must be implemented in order to start negotiations on joining the EU. According to Politico, the European Union is preparing to officially announce the start of accession negotiations in December 2023.
Ukraine expects to become a member of the European Union in the coming years.
Support for joining the EU among Ukrainians is now at a record high level.
