The heads of the parliaments of Ukraine, Lithuania, and Poland signed a resolution that seeks to offer Ukraine a chance to join the European Union in 2025-2027, the chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy announced, LB.UA reported.

“The key document we signed half an hour ago — our joint resolution and our plan of action for the next period. It was very important for us that we agreed among the plan of action that we will stick to ‘2025-2027’ strategy. This is strategy plans Ukraine’s way to the EU. We have determined that during this period is the window of opportunity for Ukraine’s accession to the European Union,” he said.

In 2025 Poland will preside over the EU, and from 2025 to 2027 – Lithuania. That gives Ukraine a higher chance of joining the European Union, Parubiy said.

The resolution was adopted during the Tenth Session of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Ukraine, Lithuania, and Poland. A new security committee was also formed.

On Feb. 7, the Ukrainian parliament amended the Constitution of Ukraine, which consolidated the country’s course for acquiring full membership in the EU and NATO.
