President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrived in Brussels on a working visit to participate in the XXII Ukraine-EU Summit.
This will be the first bilateral summit of the European Union with a partner country, which will be held in Brussels in the traditional "live" format since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ukrainian delegation to the Summit is headed by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and the EU delegation is headed by President of the European Council Charles Michel.
The leaders will discuss priority issues in Ukraine-EU relations, including further steps to implement the Association Agreement, deepening sectoral integration between Ukraine and the EU, cooperation in the context of overcoming the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and further EU support for Ukraine's reform process. Particular attention will be paid to the security situation in the temporarily occupied territories of Donbas, as well as to the ways to strengthen coordination between Ukraine and the EU in order to de-occupy Crimea and protect the rights of Crimeans.
Within the Summit, it is planned to sign a number of financial agreements between Ukraine and the EU under the European Neighborhood Instrument.
