President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi said that preparations for the Ukraine-EU summit are being completed.

Our state expects good news from this event. 

The president said this during his address to Ukrainians on January 31. 

"We are finalizing our preparations for the Ukraine-EU summit, which is scheduled for this week. In general, the week should be full of European integration. We are waiting for news for Ukraine. We are waiting for the decisions of our partners in the European Union, which will correspond to the achieved level of interaction between our institutions and the EU and our progress.

Progress, which is obviously there - even despite the full-scale war," the president said. 

Volodymyr Zelenskyi also announced new reforms in Ukraine. 

"Today I held a long meeting with the international bloc of the government and the Office. We are preparing Ukrainian positions for negotiations with EU representatives. And it is very important - we are preparing new reforms in Ukraine. Reforms that in many aspects will change the social, legal and political reality - will make them more humane, more transparent and more effective. But these details will come later, based on the results of the relevant meetings," Zelenskyy said. 

As a reminder, the Ukraine-EU summit will take place on February 3, 2023, and the first intergovernmental consultations between the government of Ukraine and the European Commission will be held the day before the summit, namely on Thursday, February 2.
