Quote: "We recognise the fair wishes of Ukraine to join the EU, we support it," Meloni said at a joint briefing with Zelenskyy.


"Ukraine is currently fighting to protect European values. These are the values of all our citizens. That is why we have decided to actively support Ukraine's status as a candidate for EU membership. We will continue to provide our full support to facilitate the gradual integration of Ukraine into the EU," Meloni promised.

She noted that Ukraine, of course, should implement reforms on the way to the EU.

"And also, within the framework of reforms, we are ready to assist," Meloni said.


"The truth is that Ukraine is a victim of aggression, and by protecting its integrity and sovereignty, it distances the war from the rest of Europe. This is extremely important for us. What Ukrainians do, they do for us," the head of the Italian government stated.
