Quote: "The speed at which Ukraine is advancing in EU membership…is amazing. It’s impressive. It is a merit-based process, and we see the enthusiasm and the intensity with which Ukraine is reforming and thus advancing rapidly towards EU membership," von der Leyen asserted.

"I am very confident that if they keep this speed, success will be there soon. It is an impressive example to show that you can move forward fast in EU membership if you fulfil the necessary conditions," she added.

Earlier, the President of the European Commission said that it is no longer possible to imagine the EU without Ukraine, Moldova and the Western Balkans.
