Open letter by Presidents in support of Ukraine’s swift candidacy to the European Union
We, the Presidents of the EU member states: the Republic of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, the Republic of Estonia, the Republic of Latvia, the Republic of Lithuania, the Republic of Poland, the Slovak Republic, and the Republic of Slovenia strongly believe that Ukraine deserves receiving an immediate EU accession perspective.
Therefore, we call on the EU Member States to consolidate highest political support to Ukraine and enable the EU institutions to conduct steps to immediately grant Ukraine a EU candidate country status and open the process of negotiations.
In this critical moment, we reiterate our full solidarity with Ukraine and its People.
Jiri Ovcacek, Director of the Press Department and Spokesman for the President
