Deputy Minister Kyiv: “We don’t want to enter the EU through the back door”
“It’s a myth that we only want today because we’re at war. We asked about it in 2014, by signing the Association Agreement, which is where we are today. And we’ve already completed most of the deal: changed the structure of government, decentralized power, implemented dozens of reforms, such as education, which now follows European rules. And we are already part of the internal energy market”. This is what the Deputy Foreign Minister of Kyiv says in an interview with Repubblica about Ukraine’s application for EU membership Emine Japarova. “The Eurobarometer says that 77 percent of Europeans want to see Ukraine in the EU. We’ve already sent them back Membership Questionnaire which Ursula von der Leyen handed over to Zelensky in Kyiv on April 8. At the end of June there will be an examination by the Council of Europe, those responsible will decide on our future. Retaining candidate status will be important, precisely to prevent someone from slamming that door in our face. Look, we’re not trying to get into Europe through the back door. Everything is official, we don’t steal anything,” he explains.

Britain: ‘Russia has already lost as many men in Ukraine as it did in Afghanistan’
The death toll among Russian troops in Ukraine in the first three months of the invasion is similar to what it has been since Soviet Union during his nine years of war in Afghanistan: British intelligence writes in its daily update on the situation in Ukraine, published by the Ministry of Defense on Twitter. London does not make an estimate of dead soldiers but provides evidence that the “high death toll” is due to a number of factors including limited air cover, a lack of flexibility and a leadership approach that reinforces failure and initiates repeat failure. And the losses in the Donbass offensive will continue to increase, he emphasizes. This continuous increase in the number of dead in the ranks of the army, the report concludes, could lead to an increase discontent on the part of the Russian population and their willingness to express this publicly.
