On June 23, 2022, the leaders of the European Union have formally accepted Ukraine as a candidate to join the EU. It is not clear yet how long will the joining take, but with the largest land mass in the EU and over 44 million population, Ukraine is prepared to work on the necessary reforms to become a member state.
“For Ukraine, it has been a long journey to receive the candidate status to the EU,” says Anna Magdich, the managing director of Accace Ukraine. “A lot of work needs to be done at both governmental and individual level by each Ukrainian citizen to meet the requirements and become an EU member, but there is no doubt it will be done. Granting this status is a great sign that Europe considers Ukraine as an equal and trusted partner for now and for the future.”
