Ukraine's EU candidacy 'very strong signal' to Russia: Macron

Published June 23,2022

Granting EU candidacy to Ukraine sends a "very strong signal" to Russia that the bloc supports Kyiv's pro-Western aspirations in the wake of Moscow's invasion, French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday.

The French leader hailed the move as a sign of "a strong and united Europe" in the face of Russia's aggression against its neighbour.
