Quote: "Is it now time for Ukraine to become a full-fledged part of the European Union? This is no longer a question for most Europeans. We have already obtained the status of a candidate country. We are already preparing to start negotiations on membership," the President of Ukraine said. 


He emphasised that Ukraine is already integrated with the European economy, logistics and energy.

"There is no alternative to Ukrainian victory. There is no alternative to Ukraine in the EU. There is no alternative to Ukraine in NATO. There is no alternative to our unity. Therefore, there is and will be no alternative to getting rid of Russian aggression once and for all, liberating the land, liberating people," Zelenskyy said.

He added that "we must liberate Ukraine and Europe because when Russian weapons shoot at us, they are already aimed at our neighbours".


"We must liberate every European institution and every sphere of the world economy from Russian aggression because only then will there be a chance for freedom," the president said.

Background: In Munich, President Zelenskyy's Office publicly declared the unacceptability of the idea of creating a so-called "hybrid tribunal" as a tool for investigating the crime of Russian aggression.
