Ukraine filled in the second part of the questionnaire to obtain the status of a candidate for membership in the European Union.
This was announced by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy, showing a completed document to the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.
"Thank you for the clear signals of support on this important path for us," the head of state said.
In this document, Ukraine assessed the compliance of Ukrainian legislation with European legislation. The answers to the second part are almost 4,000 pages, which lays out the state of Ukrainian legislation.
Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration Olha Stefanishyna said that the first part of the questionnaire, which included an assessment of Ukraineʼs compliance with economic and political criteria for EU membership, has already been highly praised by the European Commission. It is expected that the second part will also receive a positive assessment.
Leyen wrote in her Twitter that the European Commission is already waiting for a document in order to provide its opinion.
