Ukraine should join the EU: European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen

In a statement the Chief Executive of the European Union expressed unequivocal support for Ukraine becoming a member of the bloc.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen called Ukraine as being “one of us.”

She made the comments to Euronews in an interview hours after the 27-nation EU decided for the first time in its history to supply weapons to a country at war.

As per a source, the EU would send weapons worth $507 million (450 million euros) to Ukraine.

“Indeed over time, they belong to us. They are one of us and we want them in,” said von der Leyen to Euronews. In 1991, Ukraine won independence from Moscow, after the fall of the Soviet Union. Although it had aspired to join NATO and the EU its application was kept pending. Its goals are seen as a red line by Russia.
