KIEV, Feb. 13 – Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said that Ukraine could meet the standards required to submit an application to join the European Union in 10 years.
"No doubt we see that time when we submit the application for EU membership will arrive. Nevertheless we understand that we should make our homework first and in the period of 10 years – if we carry out it quickly – we will be able to meet the standards which will help us to submit the membership application. It requires a lot of hard work. We must strictly stick to our action plan. Then we will be able to speak about membership," he said at the conference entitled "Cheering and Steering: Ukraine Reforms Reloaded" in Brussels on Thursday.
