Three countries opposing granting Ukraine EU candidate status are Sweden, Denmark, and The Netherlands – European Pravda. Sweden and Denmark push for Ukraine becoming only a “potential candidate” over anti-corruption requirements; The Netherlands could withdraw opposition if it is the only EU member opposing granting Ukraine EU candidate status at the 23-24 June summit.
Two EU countries do not see Ukraine as an EU candidate, Deputy PM for European Integration of Ukraine Stefanishina said earlier. The EU Commission is expected to recommend next week that Ukraine be granted candidate status. This would need the approval of member states.
