8:18 a.m .: Zelensky awaits the “fateful” response from Brussels

This Monday “opens a truly historic week”, proclaimed Volodymyr Zelensky on Sunday evening in his daily video address, “we will have the European Union’s response to Ukraine’s candidate status”.

“Since 1991, there have been few decisions as fateful for Ukraine as the one we are awaiting today”, he added, saying he was “convinced that only a positive response is in the interest of all of Europe “.

After a positive recommendation from the European Commission last Friday, the member countries of the EU meet on Thursday and Friday to decide whether to officially grant kyiv the status of candidate for membership. A green light requires unanimity of the 27. Until then, “obviously, we expect Russia to intensify its attacks,” warned the Ukrainian president. “We are ready,” he added.
