ČT24 | Ukraine as the main topic of the ongoing EU summit

Ukraine is a central topic on the agenda of the ongoing EU summit in Brussels, both in terms of the beginning of accession talks and the provision of further financial aid to Ukraine. Does this agenda stand a chance of being approved? And what happens if Hungary decides to block the negotiations? Our senior researcher Jana Juzová spoke about the topic in an interview with ČT24.

"In connection with this summit - as regards the possible opening of accession negotiations with Ukraine - there is a very high degree of uncertainty, I would say a rather exceptional degree of uncertainty, where we really do not know and will not know until the last moment whether the leaders of European countries will be able to reach an agreement with Viktor Orbán or not. It certainly does not send a good signal towards Ukraine, but it also does not send a good signal towards Russia or China."
