Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a post on Telegram applauded the nation's parliament for appealing to the European Union to support granting Ukraine the candidate status, APA reports citing Teletrader.

"I am grateful to all MPs who supported our European integration [...] I hope that the Verkhovna Rada will continue to work with the same significant result," said Zelensky.

The European Commission last week recommended Ukraine's candidacy for accession, although it is likely to take years for the country to join the bloc.
