Building a successful Europe cannot be completed without Ukraine – Zelensky
President Vladimir Zelensky believes that the time will come when Ukraine will nevertheless become a full member of the European family.
He wrote about this in his Telegram channel.
“The construction of a united, prosperous and prosperous Europe continues. It is obvious to me that this process cannot be considered complete without Ukraine. We believe that this day will certainly come and that our State will become an integral part of the European family, “said the Head of State.
He recalled that today, May 16, Europe Day is celebrated and that Europe is above all a way of thinking.
“Europe begins with each of us. From each citizen. Respect for laws, taxes, protection of democratic values and of civil society, free expression of will, freedom of expression, thought and religion, equality and respect. An “allergy” to taking or handing over bribes, a properly parked car and a cigarette butt thrown in the trash. Let’s make Europe Day with us every day, “urged the president.
After gaining independence, Ukraine has adopted a strategic path towards European integration and has expressed its intention to join the European Community as soon as possible.

This is why Europe Day has been instituted in our country, which has been celebrated since 2003 in accordance with the presidential decree “Europe Day” on the third Saturday in May.
Ukraine is the only non-EU state to celebrate Europe Day at state level. In Europe itself, this day is celebrated on 9 May in accordance with a decision taken in 1985 at the EU Council summit in Milan.
