Implementing another EU recommendation: Zelensky signed the law on national minorities
President Volodymyr Zelensky has signed Bill No. 9610 on amendments to the Law on National Minorities (Communities) of Ukraine. This was one of the requirements of the European Commission for our country's further movement towards EU membership.
Zelensky said this in an evening video address on November 3. He noted that he had held a preparatory meeting for the next week on Friday, in particular, regarding political work and our steps together with the European Union.
"We are using every day to add content to the preparation of a decision on the start of negotiations on our country's accession to the European Union. We clearly understand the timeframe and political steps. And today I have signed an important law on national communities," the Head of State said.
He emphasized that Ukraine had thus realized another criterion for European integration.
"Additional guarantees for national communities in Ukraine, additional guarantees for our movement to the European Union. We continue to work to fulfill the recommendations of the European Commission," the President added.
On November 1, the day the EU was created, Zelensky assured that Ukraine, having learned from the experience of a full-scale war and the desire for democratic freedom, would make Europe stronger.
Earlier, Politico reported that the European Commission will recommend on November 8 to start negotiations on Ukraine's membership in the EU, but without an accelerated procedure. The same document recommends launching a corresponding process for Moldova.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, earlier, the Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Olha Stefanishyna said that the head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen would soon visit Kyiv. The visit will take place on the eve of the announcement of the results of the EU accession negotiations.
