Zelensky compared the path to the EU with the conquest of Everest: Reached the penultimate point

Ukraine was not granted the status of a candidate for the European Union, and our country received it by putting a lot efforts. This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelensky in his address to the Ukrainians.

– We say: Ukraine has been granted the status of a candidate for the EU. Let's talk: Ukraine has received the status of a candidate for the EU. Did he fall to us from the sky? Haven't we gone through and done enough?, – he said.

According to him, the path to the European Union for our country is difficult, but Ukraine has already overcome most of it.

– Imagine that we conquer Everest. Reached penultimate point. We didn’t look around, we didn’t even take a breath and we are talking about the further way to the top. How difficult it will be to overcome the last 1848 meters. In an instant, we forgot and devalued our own success. Or maybe first we remember that we have already overcome 7 thousand meters? Let's not be shy about talking about our own achievements. We will not be a people with a short memory and inferiority, the head of state emphasized.

As Zelensky noted, Ukraine has to fulfill seven requirements of the European Union, but before that our state managed to fulfill hundreds of such criteria. In particular, the president recalled the steps taken by Kyiv to move towards European integration: the anti-corruption court, the central administrative agency, industrial visa-free travel, deoligarchization, land sales, digitalization, and others.
