Negotiations of Zelenskyy and PM Sweden

Zelenskyy welcomed Ulf Kristersson with the start of Sweden's leadership in the EU Council

Immediately after the Czech Republic, for the next 6 months, Sweden took over the leadership in the Council of the European Union. On January 6, Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Swedish PM Ulf Kristersson held online talks, and the president congratulated Sweden on starting a responsible period.

"Held an online meeting with the prime minister of Sweden, Ulf Kristersson. Spoke in detail about the situation at the front and the risks of its escalation, as well as about the key needs of Ukraine to strengthen the defence forces. We expect that under Sweden's presidency of the EU Council, we will be able to start negotiations on Ukraine's accession to the European Union. This is a powerful motivator for our military and a common desire of our society. We believe that this will be a powerful stimulus for unity within the EU," Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The President thanked Ulf Kristersson for the humanitarian, military and financial assistance that Sweden provided to Ukraine during the period of the bloodthirsty Russian war. Also, minister Kristersson received an invitation to Kyiv for a personal meeting with Zelenskyy.
