ČRo Plus: Accession talks with Ukraine could start this year in Brussels

Our senior researcher Jana Juzová commented on the topic of Ukraine's accession to the European Union. Both President Petr Pavel and Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský of the Pirate Party want to push for it. Did Ukraine get a real promise from the Czech side or a false hope? And how strong is the determination of the member states to accept Ukraine among them?

So it is certainly a very ambitious prospect, the question of whether it will be realistic will depend on whether the EU Member States will really find common ground and whether they will all be able to support this decision.
