There are new announcements regarding the creation of an association of Ukraine with the EU. The future European Commission head Ursula von der Leyen said that the EU is seeking to accelerate the implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. Do we really wait?
Our history with the EU dates back to 2013. That is on November 29 this year marks the 6th anniversary of the date of the non-signing of the Association Agreement with the EU at the Vilnius summit. It is not necessary to remind that this happened during Yanukovych's times and caused the bloody events in the history of Ukraine - Euromaidan. Since then, there has been a war on our territory, we are losing territories, and, importantly, we have changed power dramatically.
We hope that the last aspect will be an impetus for the change of Ukraine's position in international relations. This is evidenced by the actions of EU representatives and the inclination of the future head of the European Commission. Ukrainians have long defended our views and our geopolitical choices, and Europe seems to have appreciated this and decided to accelerate the process.
Are we once again fed with hopes and promises, yet do we reach our first goal?
