But we understand that we need to provide convincing results to be able to join the common economic, legal, customs and digital space of the EU," Zelensky said in an interview with the German newspaper Bild when asked whether he believes Ukraine will join the European Union.

The president stressed he would like to see Ukraine at such a level of development so that EU countries would look at it as an equal member of the European Union. He promised to do everything possible to this end.

Zelensky also assured Ukraine is a reliable partner for NATO, and will do everything to join the Alliance in the future.
