When asked whether the Office of the President is confident that the format of the European political community would meet Ukraine's expectations, he replied: "Absolutely."

Quote by Zhovkva: "We remember how this initiative of Macron’s appeared, and how then we were assured that it would not hinder our movement towards candidacy and further on towards membership. Now we have the first ever summit of the European Political Community, and I believe that it achieved its goals."

Details: First, Zhovkva noted, the format brought together EU member states, those seeking membership, and those outside the EU and not planning to join, such as Britain.

"President Zelenskyy set the tone for this summit, speaking first after the host of the meeting, Tomas Fiala, and offering his vision of what this format should be. His proposal of the European Peace Community found support. And if in the end they agree on it, then this format will have [a certain] meaning," noted Ihor Zhovkva.

He also noted that Ukraine seemed to be the only one among the participants to submit its proposals regarding this format, as the summit organisers said, and it also proposed that the format be renamed.
