On Tuesday, October 12, the 23rd EU-Ukraine Summit will take place in Kiev.
The European Union will be represented by the President of the European Council Charles Michel and the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, and Ukraine will be represented by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The previous EU-Ukraine summit took place a year ago.
The summit will address issues of economic integration and political partnership between Ukraine and the EU.
EU officials will reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity following Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea.
They will also discuss the implementation of the Association Agreement between the EU and Ukraine, which entered into force in 2017, and the results of Ukraine’s accession to the free trade zone with the EU.
The EU has pledged its political support for Kiev after Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea and imposed sanctions on Moscow.
EU sanctions imposed in 2014 are still in effect.
