International Observation丨Ukraine has obtained the status of EU candidate country, whether it can truly "join the EU" is still in doubt


2022-06-24: [Chinese Article Link]  On 23 local time, the President of the European Council, Michel, announced that Ukraine and Moldova had become EU candidates. A historic moment! Ukraine is a candidate for the EU. During the two-day summit in Brussels, the President of the European Council, Michel, stated that the General Assembly had adopted the European Commission's proposal to grant Ukraine EU candidate status. President Zelensky of Ukraine praised this decision as “a unique and historic moment.” Zelensky also thanked the EU leaders for their support. Zelensky wrote on social media that “I sincerely welcome the decision of the EU leaders to grant Ukraine EU candidate status. This is a historic and unique moment in Ukraine’s relations with the EU. I thank Michel, von der Laing and the EU leaders for their support, and the future of Ukraine is in the EU. An adviser to the Government of Ukraine stated that the morale of this troubled country would be greatly encouraged by the opening of a long road to European Union member States as the Russian attack on two cities in the eastern Donbas region moved towards a “horrifying climax”. Michelle said, “This is a historic moment.” He added, “Our future is together.” According to Bloomberg, for the EU, this has ushered in a new era of risk-ridden enlargement. Unlike the EU’s earlier admission of Eastern European countries, there are territorial conflicts in these new applicants, and Russian troops are stationed on their territories. And Moldova is also a candidate for the EU. Michel says that Georgia can get the same status if certain conditions are met. The President of the European Commission, Von der Lain, congratulates the leaders of the three countries, saying, “Your country is part of our European family.” "The Horrible Climax" Russia has long opposed closer ties between Ukraine and Western organizations such as the EU and NATO. With extensive economic sanctions, Moscow has recently increased pressure on European countries, significantly reducing the supply of major gas pipelines in the region. Germany has raised the risk level of its national gas contingency plan to the second-highest “alarm” phase, increased market monitoring, and reactivated some coal-fired power plants. Four months after the outbreak of the Russian-Ukraine conflict, thousands of people have died, millions have been displaced, and some cities have been destroyed. At the same time, the decline in food and energy exports has affected countries around the world. Following the early stages of the conflict, when the Russian offensive against the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, was thwarted by the Ukrainian resistance, Russia focused its offensive on the southern and eastern parts of Ukraine. At present, fighting in the Ukrainian industrial centre, Donbas, is concentrated in the “two towns” of the Province of Luhansk, North Donetsk and Lischangsk. Zelensky urged his allies to speed up the transport of heavy weapons in order to match Russia on the battlefield. He said, "We must liberate our land and win, but act quickly." Subsequently, the Ukrainian Defence Minister stated that the HIMARS multi-barrel rocket system had arrived in Ukraine from the United States. The system had a range of 70 km and could challenge Russian artillery, which had hit Ukrainian cities from far away. Diplomats said that it would take 10 years or more for Ukraine to meet the criteria for EU membership. But EU leaders said they had to make a gesture recognizing Ukraine’s sacrifices. Can Ukraine truly “access”? Disagreements within the EU Following the escalation of the Russian-Ukraine conflict on 24 February this year, Ukraine’s President Zelensky signed an application for EU membership on 28 February, calling on the EU to launch a “new special procedure” for the rapid integration of Ukraine. On 8 April, the President of the European Commission, von der Laing, and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the European Union, Borelli, visited Ukraine and sent a questionnaire to the Ukrainian side on the status of candidate countries for the European Union. On 17 June, the European Commission indicated that it would recommend the granting of EU candidate status to Ukraine and Moldova. However, at a press conference in Brussels, the President of the European Commission, Von der Laing, stressed that Ukraine and Moldova still needed to implement reforms in a number of areas and that “a great deal of important work remains to be done”. In accordance with the relevant EU rules, applicant countries can acquire EU candidate status only if they have been unanimously approved by the 27 member States. According to the analysis, despite the support expressed by the European Commission, as well as by some EU countries, for Ukraine's accession to the EU as a candidate country, Ukraine's genuine accession to the EU has not been “satisfied”. Moreover, there are differences within the EU regarding Ukraine’s accession, following the public opposition of member States such as the Netherlands and Denmark to the granting of EU candidate status to Ukraine. CNN reports indicate that some Western European countries are concerned that Ukraine's accession will lead to a further eastward shift in the power balance of the EU, while others are concerned that Ukraine's accession will divert significant amounts of the EU budget.
