Dacian Ciolos proposes that Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova


Former USR President Renew Europe MEP Dacian Ciolos believes that the only solution for Ukraine and Moldova to join the EU bloc is a gradual accession.

Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova could gradually join the EU

Dacian Cioloş is of the opinion that solutions can be found for the accession negotiations to the European Union to start with the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. Against this background, MEP Renew Europe proposes a gradual integration of the two countries.

Also, the former president of the Save Romania Union (USR) also says that the war will be ended only through peace negotiations.

In his opinion, “Personally, I think that Russia is already humiliated by the way the hostilities have gone in Ukraine, because here, we have already had a few months since we have a war, practically, on the territory of Ukraine, which was attacked by Russia. , Russia which considers itself a great military power in this region and which continues to lose soldiers, even loses army leaders and fails to advance as intended.

So Russia is already humiliated, but let’s not forget that the Ukrainians are the ones who are losing a lot, beyond the mass migration, the mass movements of the population, the refugees, who continue to leave, are the massive material destruction, the loss of human lives. (…).

The end of the war can only be achieved through peace negotiations and from this perspective it is obvious that politicians are also needed to think about peace solutions, but at the same time, Ukraine must not be abandoned, it must continue to be supported, because fighting for the survival of its own people “, says Dacian Cioloș.

The Republic of Moldova and Ukraine should join progressively

In other news, he said he had talks with Emmanuel Macron, the French president, but also with other heads of state and government about the war in Ukraine.

He says it is difficult for the European Union to make progress in making decisions, given that all Member States must agree on a particular decision.

About these things, “I have had discussions with Emmanuel Macron and other heads of state and government in recent months on this issue, with the President of the EC we have discussions in the EP, to find solutions.

The problem with the EU, beyond the personal opinion of one leader or another, is that many people realize that as long as we remain on the decision-making system in which all Member States must agree on a particular decision, it can be taken. and we are not moving to the majority system, it is difficult for the European Union to move forward and show clarity and efficiency in decisions (…).

I believe that solutions can be found for the accession negotiations to start with the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine and instead of this parallel structure proposed by the President of France to the EU, to have a process of progressive integration into the EU, ie Candidate countries negotiating EU accession should not wait to benefit from EU Member State status until the Treaty is signed, so that we can integrate these candidate countries as they complete the negotiations of a negotiating chapter, for example, in the Common Agricultural Policy, then in the Cohesion Policy, in the Erasmus Program, to accept the free movement of labor and for these countries to see the benefits of EU accession even before the signing of the Accession Treaty and the granting of full EU membership. ” declared Dacian Cioloș.
