Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated in his Thursday online address that Kiev is closer to EU candidacy status than it has ever "dreamed", APA reports citing Teletrader.

"Today we are as close to this status as we couldn’t have dreamed of even a few years ago. Ukraine has done everything possible to obtain a candidacy," Zelensky highlighted.

He also noted that in his today's speech to the Czech parliament, he stressed that the EU's decision on Ukrainian candidacy is also representative of the bloc's decision on its own future and development.
