Zelensky calls for providing Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia with European prospect.

President Volodymyr Zelensky is sure that the aggression of the Russian Federation is aimed at hindering the European integration of Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia.

Therefore, it is important to move forward and have the support of the European Union, the head of state said during a speech at the Batumi International Conference on July 19, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The ongoing aggression of the Russian Federation, hybrid attacks, and the occupation of sovereign territories are aimed at significantly slowing down our movement towards this integration. That is why moving forward and the EU’s support are crucial to us," Zelensky said.

He thanked the EU leaders for recognizing the European aspirations of the associated partners, and stressed that "it is equally important to turn all these words into actions."

“In my opinion, the proof that our countries have a place in the European future can be the provision of a European prospect to Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia as states sharing common values in accordance with Article 49 of the Treaty on European Union. We want the EU territory to become larger, and for this choice, the territories of our three states, unfortunately, have become smaller," Zelensky emphasized.

He added that "territories have become smaller" temporarily, but how temporarily depends largely on the support of EU partners.

At the same time, the president noted that Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova have common aspirations today and common vision for tomorrow, namely, full EU membership, equality, freedom, and democracy.

Zelensky added that the countries are united not only by aspirations, but also by the price they had to pay for them, because the three states are well aware of annexation, occupation, and war.

As reported, President Volodymyr Zelensky makes a working visit to Georgia on Monday.

On May 17, the foreign ministers of Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova signed a memorandum on the establishment of the Associated Trio for the joint successful European integration of the three countries.
