For this purpose, a very important document was signed – the Declaration on Supporting Ukraine’s European Perspective. “The Republic of Lithuania supports Ukraine when Ukraine decides to apply for EU membership,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

“Ukraine in the EU is not a fantastic distant dream, it is a strategic, achievable goal that we want to realize as soon as possible, forming a broad coalition of EU countries, in the good sense of the word, will become lobbyists for Ukraine on this difficult way,” the president added.
