CER Podcast: Ukraine's road to EU membership

Ian Bond, Hennadiy Maksak
13 September 2023

In this week's Centre for European Reform podcast Ian Bond, Director of Foreign Policy, and Hennadiy Maksak, Executive Director of the Ukrainian Prism think-tank, look at Ukraine's path to EU membership after a year and a half of war with Russia. The EU has given Ukraine candidate country status and by the end of the year, it should take a decision on opening membership negotiations. Hennadiy sheds some light on the mood in Ukraine and the pair discuss the progress Ukraine has made in meeting the EU's seven criteria,  President Zelensky's decision to treat corruption in wartime as high treason, and the likelihood of elections in wartime conditions.
