EC chief Ursula von der Leyen said the EC will respond to Ukraine's EU membership bid in June, before the issue is discussed by the EU's members.
She said on Twitter that she had a conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and was waiting to receive an answer on Ukraine joining the EU. In April, von der Leyen came to Kyiv to show solidarity with Ukraine and agreed to consider Ukraine's desire to join the EU.
