The leaders of the European Union have granted Ukraine the status of a candidate for membership in the Community. The decision was made on Thursday in Brussels as part of a meeting of the European Council at the level of heads of state and government, a senior source in the European Council told Interfax-Ukraine.

This is a historic decision both for a united Europe and for Kyiv, which is at war with Russia.

The summit, which addressed the issue, began on Thursday, June 23. Representatives of all 27 EU countries voted in favor of Ukraine’s candidacy.

“This is a crucial moment for the European Union. It is a geopolitical choice that we will make today,” said European Council President Charles Michel before the vote.
