The European Commission president visited Kyiv today, as the EU reviews Ukraine’s bid to eventually join the bloc. Meanwhile, Mariupol’s exiled mayor has warned of a cholera risk in the occupied city.
“With President Zelensky, I will take stock of the joint work needed for reconstruction and of the progress made by Ukraine on its European path,” von der Leyen posted on Twitter.
The President of the European Commission added that it was “good to be back in Kyiv” and reassured that the European Union supported Ukraine.
“Europe stands with you,” Von Der Leyen wrote in Ukrainian.
As reported, at its meeting in Brussels on June 23-24, the European Council is expected to consider Ukraine’s application for EU membership and make a decision on granting Ukraine the EU candidate status.
