Zelensky: Europe can create new history of freedom thanks to bravery of Ukrainians

16.06.2022 23:54

Ukraine has come closest to the European Union since independence, and the “gray zone” between the EU and Russia may finally disappear thanks to the courage of the Ukrainian people.

“It is thanks to the bravery of Ukrainian men and women that Europe can create this new history of freedom and finally remove the ‘gray’ zone between the EU and Russia in Eastern Europe. Ukraine has come closest to the European Union since independence,” President Zelensky said in his latest address.

The Head of State called the day historic, given the visit of the leaders of France, Romania, Germany, and Italy who supported granting Ukraine the status of a candidate for EU membership.

“Of course, all relevant procedures must be followed, and all EU member states must join. But at our meeting today a big step was made – a step forward,” Zelensky explained.

As reported, on June 16, President of France Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Prime Minister of Italy Mario Draghi, and President of Romania Klaus Iohannis arrived in Ukraine and held talks with President Zelensky.

  1. “It is thanks to the bravery of Ukrainian men and women that Europe can create this new history of freedom and finally remove the ‘gray’ zone between the EU and Russia in Eastern Europe. Ukraine has come closest to the European Union since independence,”

    There’s only one problem; Europe is not ready to create anything new. It enjoys the status quo of doing lots of business with the crime syndicate called Russia. At least, the “major players” think that way. There is no other explanation as to why they show such lackluster enthusiasm to help Ukraine win this war.
    On the same note, they will also have a very difficult time with China in the near future because, as with Russia, they refuse to cut the economic umbilical cord to this trash nation too.

  2. I will respect President Zelensky’s desires, but I do think there could perhaps be better alternatives to the EU. Whether it’s cultural or historical, there are differences between Eastern/Central Europe and that of Western Europe. People of Western Europe, I don’t think, understand the pain, suffering, cultural, historical, moral and ethical background and desires of the people of Eastern Europe. Not good or bad just very different. Difficult to have a union without establishing a commonality first. I don’t think geographical is enough. IMHO!!!

    • By the way America became United after suffering and overcoming a civil war that took the lives of 600;000 people. Can the EU sustain such a disaster? I don’t know enough about the EU citizenship and.desires to answer that.
