“I know we can always rely on the President of the European Commission in this regard,” Zelensky added.

As reported, in December, the European Council will meet in Brussels, where EU leaders are expected to decide on the creation of a special EUR 50 billion Ukraine Fund as part of the EU's multiannual budget for 2024-2027. Another important outcome of the summit may be the EU's decision to start negotiations with Ukraine and Moldova on EU membership.
