A symbol of EU to be with #Ukraine in its war and be the EU28th


Since Tuesday, the EU members of Parliament voted at majority to the resolution Ukraine as to enter to EU union as 28th country, the Ukraine’s flag is at half mast. It is mentioned in the official paper to be approved by EU council “Calls for the EU institutions to work towards granting EU candidate status to Ukraine, in line with Article 49 of the Treaty on European Union and on the basis of merit, and, in the meantime, to continue to work towards its integration into the EU single market along the lines of the Association Agreement”

The resolution is also approved in order to help urgently the country and to request to Russia to stop the war. Secondly, if this official document will accept by European Council, Ukraine enters as a member of EU28 and European military from NATO can cross the territory to fight against Russia. But the situation is still holding by an another strategy to not declare a 3rd War with Kremlin. Russia hide some nuclear weapon could kill a lot of citizens in Europe, Baltic and Pacific. One week that allies of NATO and European head of States think of theses possibilities explained deeply by Joseph Borrell during press conferences since the invasion by Russia.

The President of EU Parliament, Metsola to Zelenskyy declared “We must face the future together” during the plenary that she invited the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky who addressed to the audience in direct to the world from his bunker in Kiev to be added as the star of Eu 27 countries. He declared

We are fighting for our rights, our freedoms, our lives, and currently — for our survival. We are also fighting to be equal members of Europe. So now, prove that you are with us”, he told MEPs. “Prove that you indeed are Europeans and then life will win over death, and light will win over darkness. Glory to Ukraine

The President of EU commission Mrs Ursula Von der leyen, the two leaders European of Council Mr Charles Michel and Mr Joseph EU’s Foreign Policy chief Josep Borrell explained their desire to accept it.

Joseph Borrell said

To make peace, we need to be two; but for war, it is enough with one, as Mr Putin has shown. That is why we need to increase our deterrence capacity a lot, in order to prevent war. Defending rule of law and strengthening trade relations will not be enough to turn the world into a peaceful place
