“Ukraine has already fulfilled 63% of the tasks stipulated by the Association Agreement. We are ready to work hard further in this direction. Of course, we want to hear in response to progress specific dates when Ukraine can be a candidate country when Ukraine can be included in the European Union,” Shmygal said.
