It is announced in Paris that the process of Ukraine’s EU membership may take decades. This was stated yesterday by one of the French radio stations on the air of French Secretary of State for European Affairs Clement Bonn.
“If we claim that Ukraine will join the EU in six months, in a year or two, then we are lying. It’s a very time consuming process և I would not want us to be delusional. “Such a lie could disappoint a whole generation of Ukrainians,” the French official said, adding that Ki’s membership in the European family could take 15 to 20 years.
“In the meantime, we must offer Ukraine another measure of cooperation. “In particular, we are talking about the mechanism proposed by President Macron,” Bonn said.
Weeks ago, the French president proposed “the creation of a new organization of European political cooperation, which will also include Ukraine.”
Commenting on Macron’s proposal, Ukrainian President Zelensky said that “Ukraine’s alternative to EU membership is a compromise with Putin.”
