As the Russia’s assault against Ukraine entered its fifth day, the President of the pro-Western country, Volodymyr Zelenskyy has urged the European Union to as a mqatter of urgency, grant his country ‘immediate’ membership to the union.
According to AFP reports, Zelenskyy was quoted as saying,
“We appeal to the European Union for the immediate accession of Ukraine via a new special procedure,” the leader said in a new video address.
“Our goal is to be together with all Europeans and, most importantly, to be on an equal footing. I’m sure it’s fair. I’m sure it’s possible,” he says.
He said that 16 children have died during the first four days of Moscow’s assault and another 45 were wounded as he hailed “Ukrainian heroes,”
