Zelensky says next week to be “historic” for Ukraine

President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine believes next week will be historic for his country.

He stated this in his latest address to the nation, reports Ukrinform.

"We are also preparing for a new result in our relations with the European Union. The EU has already approved the negotiating framework for Ukraine, and we expect the actual start of negotiations on June 25 – the Ukrainian Government delegation will be in Brussels for that. It is a truly historic week," the head of state noted.

He recalled that this is exactly what Ukraine has been working toward for the past decade.

"This result is the personal result of everyone who chose Ukraine on February 24, who fights for our country, who strengthens Ukraine with everything necessary," the president emphasized.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, on June 14, EU member states agreed in principle at the level of permanent representatives on the framework of accession talks with Ukraine and Moldova.

The first intergovernmental conference will discuss the issue on June 25.
