KYIV: The EU’s decision to make Ukraine a candidate for EU membership boosted morale for war-weary Ukrainians and hopes for a more secure future on Friday, as the country’s military moved its fighters to an area in the eastern Donbass region. The chief ordered a retreat from the city.
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky acknowledged the decision of EU leaders as support for his country’s fight against Russia’s aggression and said he was determined to ensure that Ukraine retains its ability to decide whether it is in Europe or under the influence of Moscow.
