Ukraine’s prime minister said the EU-Ukraine summit would be held in Kiev on Friday as part of the war-torn country’s efforts to repel the Russian invasion.
“The Ukraine-EU summit will be held in Kiev on February 3,” Denys Shmyhal told a government meeting, noting it was an “extremely important” event for Kiev’s membership bid to the EU.
“The fact that the summit is being held in Kiev sends a strong signal to partners and enemies alike,” he added.
It is not yet known who will represent the European Union at the summit.
Ukraine’s prime minister said another important event will take place on Thursday. We are talking about consultations between the Ukrainian government and the European Commission.
“First [консультациях] in our history,” Shmyhal said.
Ukraine received EU candidate status in June last year.
