All agreements with European Union must be fulfilled

 President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said that all agreements with the European Union must be fulfilled and every word must work in reality.

“Today, I also held a meeting on the European direction – our relations with the European Union, the tasks for this year, integration in general, and specifically on relations with our neighbors in the European Union,” he said in a video address on Thursday.

“Our priority is clear: all existing agreements must be implemented, and every word that is spoken must be put into practice. This is exactly the approach Ukraine is taking on the European direction. And it is thanks to this that we have already achieved historic results,” he said.

According to him, “this year should be a time of real negotiations on accession. We can start as early as spring and take the first negotiating steps.”

Zelenskyy stressed that “this year should also be a time of maximum pragmatism in relations with our neighbors.”

“Everyone sees that Russia is not going to stop. They in Moscow want an arms race and new waves of destabilization. All of us in Europe need to realize this clearly. If the freedom of one falls, the freedom of all the others will not withstand either,” Zelenskyy stressed.
