Roberta Metsola

The President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, considered this Friday that the European Commission’s recommendation to grant Ukraine candidate status sends a “strong political signal against autocracy”, hoping for support from European leaders.

“Ukraine candidate status sends a strong political signal against autocracy and for freedom,” said Roberta Metsola, in a post on the social network Twitter.

“On behalf of the European Parliament, I welcome the Commission’s recommendation,” he added.

For Roberta Metsola, the recommendation of the community executive traces the “right path for the European Council to grant Ukraine the status of candidate to the European Union (EU)”.

This is the first reaction from other European institutions to the Commission’s ‘green light’, after Roberta Metsola was one of the first community leaders to visit Ukraine last April.
