Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba, during a recent meeting with the 27 Foreign Ministers of the European Union (EU), urged the bloc to open accession talks, signaling an ambitious step towards EU membership for Ukraine.

In the meeting, the Ukrainian official raised two critical issues: the need for long-range artillery ammunition and the urgency to initiate short-range EU accession talks. The Minister revealed in a tweet that progress is being made on both fronts.


Apart from the aforementioned topics, the discussion also covered several other significant matters. The Peace Formula, suggested by Ukraine’s President, was on the agenda. Ukraine’s request for F-16 fighter jets, a crucial part of its military modernization efforts, was also discussed.

The meeting saw the consideration of a Special Tribunal for Putin as well as new military aid packages for Ukraine. Moreover, the Foreign Ministers discussed mine clearing operations.
