Continuing her news conference, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen says Ukrainians are “ready to die” for the European perspective.

She adds: “We want them to live with us in the European dream.”

“This is of course on the understanding that the country will carry out a number of further important reforms,” von der Leyen adds.

“In the view of the Commission, Ukraine has clearly demonstrated the country’s aspiration and the country’s determination to live up to European values and standards.”
