PoliticsUkraine bid to join EU will take decades: Macron

Moscow (The Times Groupe)- French President Emmanuel Macron says it will take decades for Ukraine to join the European Union.

He suggested instead that Ukraine could join a “parallel European community” while it awaited a decision.

Macron said non-EU members would be able to join the European security architecture in other ways.

He spoke while fierce fighting continued in the eastern Donbas region, where Russia is trying to gain ground.

According to a senior US defence official, the Russian advance was “a single-digit kilometer kind of progress”. There are serious battles going on in the Luhansk region, according to a Ukrainian leader.
