(Worthy News) – The European Union agreed to start examining the membership bids of Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova on Monday as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine stretched into its 12th day.
The French Presidency of the Council of the EU announced on Twitter that its 27 member states “agreed to invite the European Commission to present an opinion on each of the applications for EU membership submitted by Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova.”
The trio of former Soviet states submitted their requests for admittance last week, a process that usually takes years. After the opinion is given, members states have to agree unanimously to allow an applicant to become a “candidate,” and then certain “accession criteria” are considered during the formal membership negotiations.
