European Commission to recommend starting talks on Ukraine’s accession to EU – media

Europe Editor of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Rikard Jozwiak reported on Twitter that the European Commission would recommend in the second half of October that Ukraine and Moldova start EU accession talks. However, the concession of all 27 EU member countries on the matter will still be needed in December.

Earlier this year, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal stated that Ukraine has an ambitious plan to be fully ready for EU accession within two years.
