After Germany, France also slowed down on a quick action for Ukraine’s accession to the EU: “It will take 15-20 years”

After Berlin, Paris is also slowing down the timetable for Ukraine’s entry into the European Union. “We have to be honest. If we say that Ukraine will join the European Union in 6 months, a year or two years, we are lying. This is not true. She is undoubtedly 15 or 20 years old, And it is very long.” The new French Minister for European Affairs said today, Clement Bon. Three days ago, the German chancellor Olaf Schulz He had stated before the Bundestag that he did not support anyone faster action Compared to the standard criterion for Ukraine’s entry into the European Union. “The lack of a shortcut to Ukraine is also a matter of loyalty to the six Western Balkan countries,” said Schultz, adding that “Ukraine belongs to the European family but entry into Europe is not a question. A few months or a few years.” The position of France and Germany contrasts with that of the Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi The President of the European Union Commission Ursula von der Leyenboth in favor of speeding up the process.

Every country applying to join the European Union must commit to implementing reforms that will allow it to align with European standards on rule of law, economics, justice, politics and industry. And this is what I asked the countries that finally joined how Bulgaria and Romania or in 2004 Hungary, Cyprus, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Baltic states. Partial integration, as happened with Poland and Hungary regarding the rule of law and independence of the judiciary, may allow countries that are still below certain criteria to join the G27 and vote in the Council of the European Union, as well as in the European Parliament on these issues. The problem was exacerbated, as we have seen, by the fact that, pending treaty review, each of these countries could exercise what was in fact a veto in the Council. And Ukraine on these parameters has many shortcomings so far. According to the Corruption Perception Index developed by Transparency, it is the most corrupt country on the old continent, ranking 122nd worldwide out of 180 analyzed. According to reports from the European Commission itself, There is no real strategy to combat organized crime, While the major national media are concentrated in the hands of a small group of publishers. Also serious shortcomings in this matter respect human rights , Especially with regard to societies Lgbtqi.
