President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will address the leaders of the European Union in a video conference during the summit, according to Politico.

According to an official representative of the EU, the president will speak via video conference as crucial issues for Ukraine are at stake. It is noted that on the eve of the summit in Brussels, there were rumors that the Ukrainian leader would personally participate in the summit. However, the plan was supposedly disrupted on Wednesday, December 13, due to the unclear results regarding our country's future accession to the union.

The summit of EU leaders will take place on December 14 and 15. The meeting will address issues related to the prospects of Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia's integration into the union. Hungary is expected to block anything related to supporting our country.

Meanwhile, members of the European Parliament have called on the European Council to start negotiations on the accession of Ukraine and Moldova to the European Union.
